      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Tyler Quick, 18, was arraigned Friday on a charge of assault, according to police in the Detroit suburb of Ferndale, Michigan.

Lt. William Wilson told The Daily Tribune of Royal Oak that Quick was attending a party at the home of a 51-year-old man when the host passed out.

Police said Quick placed a lit candle under the man's crotch, setting fire to his pants. The man awoke and extinguished the fire.

A police lieutenant said Quick thought it would be funny to burn the victim.

Authorities said Quick is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
