ZEPHYRHILLS, FL (WFLA) -

A man is hospitalized after he tried setting fire to a home Pasco County Deputies said he burglarized on Friday night in Zephyrhills.

According to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office report deputies were dispatched to 5102 Court St. just before midnight in response to a burglary in progress. By the time they arrived, deputies found the victim outside of the home.

Inside the house deputies could see the suspect who they have identified as 28-year-old Edward Keith Glenn. When they attempted to move in to arrest him he barricaded himself in a back bedroom where he attempted to ignite a fire.

Deputies made their way into the bedroom, extinguished the flames and attempted to arrest Glenn, who resisted. As Glenn fought with deputies they used a stun gun on him.

After he was handcuffed Glenn continued to fight by kicking and biting deputies. After he was transported to a medical facility he continued to battle and had to be sedated.

Investigators say Glenn was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Once he is medically cleared he will be booked into the Pasco County Jail.

Authorities say Glenn is facing occupied burglary, arson, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer charges.
