VIDEO: TX Suspect Sets 2 Police Vehicles on Fire While in Custody

A Corpus Christi, TX, man is facing serious charges after he allegedly led police on a foot pursuit then set two police units on fire, reports KRIS-TV.

Police said it started Thursday after an officer stopped a driver talking on his cell phone while driving and then smelled marijuana and noticed drugs inside the car. Police say they handcuffed the passenger, but he got away from them, leading them on a foot chase.

Officers found the suspect and placed him in a police cruiser, and he allegedly set the police cruiser on fire. The suspect was then put into another police unit, and he was able to set that unit on fire while officers were addressing the media about the situation.

Police added he had a lighter hidden in his pockets.

Got to say this W T F??? First no p[roper search, could be missed by a lot of us. But after he sets the patrol car on fire they don't completely AGAIn and he does it AGAIN?? perhaps some cops need top pay for some of that damage and go back to basic safety trianing

This dude is a trip. Funny thing is, he's just like all the rest. Come that wet ass hour, old "Quick Drawers" here will be on the horn screaming for us to help just like all the rest of the haters and we'll show up and help. Just like we always do.

As far as the dummies missing a lighter TWICE.. Well, that's on them and they SHOULD pay for the cars.

But the cost of the cars will go toward the officers in the fact their taxes will be used for it, the cost to replace will be taken from the budget, if insured they will notice rise of insurance of covering police vehicles.The first one you have to give them, since a lot of agencies do not require removal of mundane items from suspect. The second one should be investigated for a violation of policy though. If he set a fire the first time then they needed to find the source of the fire.
