Man burned trying to copy movie stunt

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. --Attempts to duplicate 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
According to one published report, the first attempt failed to ignite, so they, of course, used more lighter fluid.

And, to answer the inevitable question whenever this kind of thing happens:
Witnesses told police that Anderson, who was drunk, volunteered to do the stunt Sunday after watching the movie
