BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge, Louisiana, man has been arrested after police say he lit his wife on fire during an argument.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/2fesNAO ) police arrested 28-year-old John Emmett Harleaux on Tuesday on a felony count of domestic abuse battery by burning.

An arrest report shows Harleaux began spraying his wife with hairspray during a September argument at their home. When the woman called her mother, the report says Harleaux pulled out a lighter and lit the flammable hairspray on fire.

The woman suffered second- and third-degree burns on her arm, shoulder and back.

It’s not immediately clear whether Harleaux has an attorney.
