Deerfield Beach, FL – Authorities are offering a reward for information about the arsonist who set a Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) patrol vehicle on fire with a deputy inside it on Sunday.
The incident occurred at about 1:30 a.m. on July 3 in the 1000-block of West Hillsboro Boulevard in Deerfield Beach, WPLG reported.
BSO said the deputy noticed heavy smoke coming from the rear passenger side of the vehicle.
About the same time, “a passerby also flagged the deputy down and advised him that his rear passenger tire was on fire,” WPLG reported.
BSO said the deputy jumped out of his vehicle to investigate the smoke and immediately saw a lit flare that had been placed under his vehicle, according to the press release.
