Seattle flamethrower torches Police car

Shocking bodycam and dashcam video from Seattle police captures the moment a man brandishing a piece of burning lumber charges at a patrol car and smashes it…

A Seattle cop suffered minor burns after a man allegedly set his police cruiser on fire Thursday afternoon, according to bodycam footage of the incident.

Police responded to a call at South Lake Union Park shortly before 2 p.m. after receiving reports that a man was walking around with a piece of lumber on fire, Seattle police spokesperson Detective Patrick Michaud told the Seattle Times.

In the three videos taken from the incident, the suspect can be seen holding a piece of burning wood to allegedly attack the officer in the patrol car.

After the suspect threw the items at the car, the suspect started to flee as the officer began to open fire through his windshield.

The police cruiser, which was parked in an alleyway, burst into flames.

Officers chased the suspect into a nearby parking garage, where they tasered him and took him into custody.

The suspect was arrested on charges of assault and possibly arson, Michaud said.

The officer suffered minor injuries to both his hands and his leg; he was treated at a nearby medical center for those injuries.

The incident remains under investigation.
