COLUMBUS, Ohio — A man who had apparently been inhaling a chemical from an aerosol can to get high caught fire yesterday after a Lancaster police officer shocked him with a stun gun.

Police were summoned to an area in front of the Kmart store on Memorial Drive just after 8 p.m. on a report that a man was yelling threats at people and darting into traffic.
