FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — Investigators say a California man splashed gasoline on the mother of his toddler son and set the woman on fire.

The Fresno Bee says the 21-year-old man was in a car with the woman and the couple's 2-year-old boy on Sunday afternoon when he became emotional while discussing their relationship.

Fresno police say the man splashed gasoline on the woman and set her ablaze.

Sgt. Steve Crawford says the car was on fire and the woman was rolling on the ground to put out the flames when officers arrived. The woman was taken to a hospital with minor burns.

The little boy is OK.

His father, whose name hasn't been released, has been arrested for investigation of attempted murder and domestic violence.

Maybe the Government will outlaw gasoline. If they think it'll stop gun violence to outlaw guns,then this should work too,right?

I think Obama needs to raise the price of gasoline so most people can't afford it. Oh wait he did that and it still hasn't worked.
