(Newser) – A Georgia man is facing criminal charges after shocking surveillance footage surfaced of a gas station explosion. Police say Austin Dawkins sparked a lighter, starting a fire. But the graphic video shows he then pulled the nozzle out of the truck, pointed it as his wife, and pulled the trigger. Jessica Dawkins suffered second- and third-degree burns to her legs, arms, back, and head. The video shows her on fire as she runs for help. Police are charging her husband with reckless conduct—a misdemeanor.
