Police: Hagerstown Man charged with torching Supreme Court vehicle

The suspect was critically injured.



WASHINGTON (AP) — Authorities say they’ve charged a Maryland man with setting fire to a police vehicle outside the U.S. Supreme Court in the nation’s capital. The Washington Post reports that Cody Tarner, 22, of Hagerstown, was identified by Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department on Friday.

Authorities say Tarner was critically injured with severe burns from Wednesday’s incident. Tarner was charged with federal destruction of property and using fire to destroy property, among other counts.

Police said Tarner remains hospitalized.

He has not appeared in court. And it’s unclear if he has an attorney.
