Man Burns his Friend's Genitals in 'Jackass' Stunt
I do not even want to hear about anybody blaming a movie for two guys being stupid enough to do this.
If someone is dumb enough to allow their you-know-whats to be sprayed with lighter fluid and then set ablaze, then sooner or later, movie or no movie, they will do mischief to themselves.
Attempts to do a movie stunt landed one man in the hospital with burned genitals and another facing criminal charges. The men were trying to do a stunt from one of the "Jackass" movies, in which a character lights his genitals on fire.
Jared W. Anderson, 20, suffered serious burns to his hands and genitals, according to the criminal complaint. Randell D. Peterson, 43, who sprayed lighter fluid on Anderson and lit him on fire, was charged with felony battery and first-degree reckless endangerment Tuesday in Eau Claire County Court.
Witnesses told police that Anderson, who was drunk, volunteered to do the stunt Sunday after watching the movie, the complaint said.
