Man arrested and charged with aggravated assault with serious bodily injury
A 27-year-old man was arrested by Nederland police Thursday on a warrant signed by Justice of the Peace Marc DeRouen charging him with aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, according to a news release from the Nederland Police Department.
Micah Distefano's arrest stems from the December 28th, 2013 incident where 29-year-old Zachary Bailey of Port Arthur was doused with gasoline and then ignited, Nederland police stated.
Bailey suffered third degree burns over 67 percent of his body and is currently undergoing treatment at UTMB in Galveston, Texas, Nederland police stated.
Distefano is currently in the Jefferson County Jail and Judge DeRouen has set his bond at $125,000, Nederland police stated.
