Seattle Police Arrest Man Who Allegedly Set Fire To Cop Car with Officer Inside
Seattle Police Department
Things are heating up in Seattle, where police arrested a man who set a patrol car on fire with a piece of wood on fire … and the video shows the officer inside facing a wall of flames.
The Seattle Police Department just released body camera footage from the savage incident, which took place on the streets of South Lake Union on Thursday and included a hail of gunfire from cops.
In the video you see a man walking down an alley holding a huge piece of burning wood. The officer yells at him to stop, and the guy yells “f *** you” and keeps walking.
Then you see the cop speeding towards the man and telling him to stop again, then the guy turns around and attacks with his huge flaming stick … setting the car on fire with the officer inside.
The video shows the officer opening fire through the windshield as the guy walks him around the corner.
Police said officers pursued the suspect, who was apparently not shot, in a parking lot and used a Taser to take him into custody. Cops say he was booked into King County Jail and charged with first degree assault and second degree assault.
Flames from the burnt wood engulfed the entire squad car, cops said, and an officer was taken to a nearby medical center with non-fatal burns.
Watch the video … it’s 🔥🔥🔥 !!!
