A man who was lit on fire at a bar Friday has been released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center.

Investigators said William Bonner Jr., 36, was at Alley Katz off of Washington Road around 1:30 a.m. Friday when he bet his friends to light his head on fire.

Video surveillance from the bar shows two men approach Bonner, throw a shot of alcohol on his head and light it.

Bonner was transported to the burn center at Doctors Hospital in critical condition.

No criminal charges were filed.

Dumb and Dumber....

Unpublished

Soon to be seen on the upcoming TruTV special; "World's Dumbest.........."

*Shrug*........he's doing OK now, so I guess we can't give him this week's "Darwin Award". You have to remove yourself from the gene pool to be eligible for that auspicious honor.

Close but no cigar.

All three of them are candidates!

They apparently share enough IQ points to light a match.

The men were not charged

The men were not charged because the police determined that having your head and face burnt, was punishment enough.

This whole thing is

This whole thing is ridiculous. The so called victim needs to be held for every penny of his medical costs. If he is employed and his employer is responsible for premiums, his employer needs to dump him off into Obamacare. Let his stupid antics suck up medical care expenses better spent on the sick. Of course, I retract those statements if he does have insurance. No wait, I don't. It counts toward premium costs.

You 0 care fans, do you really want to pay for medical care of the really drunk stupids?

Ghost Rider

He was burned pretty badly according to those that know him. Hopefully his realization that he needs to make a life change includes new "Friends".
