CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The man who caught fire after being tased by police back in February 2015 has pleaded guilty to several charges in relation to the incident.

Miles November pleaded guilty today to two counts of driving after forfeiting a license and one count of DUI, 3rd offense.

November is also charged with assault and battery after he allegedly struggled with officers who freed him from the wreckage of his flipped vehicle.

At the time, one officer discharged his Taser, causing November’s clothing to catch fire. Family members said that November suffered burns covering 85 percent of his body.

November will now return to court in late November to face the assault charge before being sentenced in December for the charges he pleaded guilty to today.
