Man Charged In Fiery Cedar Hill Confrontation With Police Officer
CEDAR HILL, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – North Texas authorities say they’ve filed charges against a 27-year-old man who they say set himself and a police officer on fire in a confrontation at a chicken wing restaurant.
Authorities announced Friday that Terrance Jarmell Dunn is charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a public servant. He underwent surgery following the incident Wednesday in the Dallas suburb of Cedar Hill and remains hospitalized.
City spokesman Corky Brown says officer Ann McSwain also is hospitalized and will require surgery for severe burns.
Two other officers injured Wednesday were treated and released.
Authorities say the officers had intended to question Dunn about a nearby burglary when he ran into the restaurant while holding a bottle of flammable liquid. He lit himself on fire and the flames spread to McSwain.
