A Seattle police officer is recovering from minor burns after a man threw a blazing piece of wood into a police cruiser Thursday.
Multiple videos of the incident show a man walking down an alleyway with a large burning wooden stick in the city’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
Videos from the responding police officer’s dash and body cameras were released by the Seattle Police Department, as well as another clip which was apparently taken from a nearby surveillance camera.
KIRO-TV anchor Dave Wagner shared the footage on his Twitter page.
