Boston Police report a man barricaded himself in his Walford Way apartment, ripped a gas line out of the wall and then failed to blow the place up because he couldn't get his lighter to work.
Police say when officers arrived at 106 Walford Way around 12:10 p.m., the man was still trying to ignite the gas.
Officers were able to quickly and tactically enter the residence and, using the less-lethal, Super Sock round shotgun, disarmed the male and placed him into custody. The male was transported by EMS to an area hospital for evaluation, and officers will seek complaints against him for Attempted Arson, Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, and Disorderly Person.
