Turns out, nothing is free in life.

A 20-year-old Dunstable man reportedly siphoning gas by the light of the moon suffered second-degree burns over 20 percent of his body Sunday, when he sparked a lighter so he could see better.

Tyngsboro police charged Michael Corbett with larceny and destruction of property, for stealing the gas from a truck parked on a construction site, WFXT-TV (Ch. 25) reported last night.

Corbett's father, Al Corbett, said he was limited in what he could say due to the charges. He said his son was discharged from the hospital, but would not allow the younger Corbett to comment, citing his ongoing legal woes.

WFXT-TV reported the younger Corbett went to a construction site late Sunday with a garden hose, found a flat-bed truck parked on the site of a future Olive Garden and went to work. But Corbett reportedly had trouble seeing, so he lit a cigarette lighter. The resulting explosion burned him and the truck. Police confirmed a man was burned in a gasoline-related incident but refused to release further details last night.

I won't blame him for siphoning the gas, however he didn't do anything right

1) he didn't get away with the gas

2) he didn't manage to kill himself in the explosion (so nix on any chances for a Darwin award)
