Austin Dawkins, seen with his wife Jessica, faces a charge of reckless conduct which holds a maximum penalty of a year in prison and up to a $1,000 fine.
The couple frantically jumps back but Jessica Dawkins is seen unable to retreat fast enough.
Her husband, who suffered minor injuries to his hands, was arrested Friday after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Dawkins’ wife, Jessica Dawkins, was immediately engulfed by the flames despite her best attempt to get away.
Within split seconds fire officials say gasoline vapor ignited around his hand like a fire ball.
She was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta before being released.
As seen on video his apparent attempt to withdraw the nozzle instead amplifies the flames in the direction of his 30-year-old wife, Jessica Dawkins.
As she runs, fire catches onto her body critically injuring her with second- and third-degree burns to her legs, arms, back and head, Access North GA reports.
Austin Dawkins, 37, is now facing criminal charges after surveillance video taken at a Clarkesville gas station on Oct. 16 appears to show him dangerously placing a lighter between his truck’s gas tank and his wife.
The moment a Georgia man allegedly lit his wife on fire by playing with a lighter while filling up his gas tank was caught on video.
