At Place de la Nation, a circle on the eastern side of Paris, between Place de la Bastille and the Bois de Vincennes, a shirtless man briefly burst into flames after the French police, who had tried to arrest him, deployed a taser on his ass.
Prior to deploying the taser, the cops struck the man with batons and hit him with a pepper spray. It is speculated that the combination of the fumes from pepper spray with the electric shock of the taser sparked the flames.
The incident happened in July 2013, but the bodycam footage has just been released. The police detachment conducted the internal investigation of the incident, but nobody was held to account. The spokesperson for the police refused to provide a statement on the incident. It has also not been specified why the police were trying to arrest the man.
