OSBI investigating death near Lindsay

The Oklahoma Bureau Of Investigations (OSBI) is investigating an “in-custody death” near Lindsay, Tuesday evening.
According to McClain County Sheriff Don Hewett, Norman Police requested a welfare check on a person who was making suicidal comments at 100th Road and Council, around 7:30 p.m.
Upon arrival, Lindsay officers said the man refused to exit his vehicle and refused to obey all commands given by the officers.
According to the OSBI, he stepped out the vehicle, doused himself in gasoline and pulled out a lighter.
Sheriff Hewett says, that’s when an officer at the scene told the man to stop and deployed a taser.
When the officer deployed his taser gun, a fire was ignited and the man burned to death.
Investigators are trying to determine if the fire was ignited by the taser or the man’s cigarette lighter.
According to investigators, an officer did sustain injuries from the flash fire and was transported to a local hospital.
The OSBI has not listed any names of those involved in the incident.
This investigation is ongoing.
