Harlingen, TX police officer set on fire...
Harlingen is where you fly into when you go to South Padre Island. My advice do act like Sergio Gonzales, police do not take to kidly to that. They do not take to kindly to that.
A police officer was hospitalized in critical condition today after he was doused with a liquid and caught on fire when he responded to a domestic disturbance call.
Carlos Ramos, 35, suffered second-degree burns to his neck and right arm and third-degree burns to his legs Monday.
Sergio Gonzales, 42, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault of a police officer, evading arrest, arson and attempted capital murder. A third assault charge was for striking his 17-year-old stepson in the face, police spokesman Johnny Ramirez said.
