Bad bet lands man in burn unit

A 36-year-old man is in critical condition at Joseph M. Still Burn Center after betting his friends to light his head on fire at an Augusta bar.

Video surveillance from Alley Katz, off Washington Road, shows two men approaching William Bonner Jr., throwing a shot of alcohol on his head and lighting it around 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Blaise Dresser said no criminal charges will be filed because Bonner admitted to investigators that he had agreed to the act.
