Controlled Burn Leads To Arrest

 A controlled burn in northeast Wichita County leads to one man being handcuffed and then sent to the hospital.

It all started around 9:00a.m. Wednesday on a property near the intersection of FM 890 and FM 171.  Fire crews from Cameron Gardens and Wichita East notified the sheriff’s office.  A spokesman for the sheriff’s office said the man didn’t notify the property authorities regarding the agricultural burn.  This is a violation of a burn ban.

There was an altercation between the man and authorities and he was arrested.  Emergency responders were also called because the man complained of unknown injuries.  He was taken to the hospital.

Newschannel 6 is working to get more information to see if he will face any charges.
