Witnesses reported seeing the man dancing near the burning truck before he was taken into custody.

SAN FRANCISCO — The California Highway Patrol says a man has been placed on a psychiatric hold following his arrest by a burning pickup truck near the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge toll plaza.

Officer Michael Ferguson says officers responded to the blaze shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday. Witnesses reported seeing the man dancing near the burning truck before he was taken into custody.

Ferguson says investigators are looking into whether the suspect owns the truck and intentionally set it on fire.

Several lanes were closed as fire crews responded to the blaze. The fire was put out around 8:30 a.m. The man near the truck suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital, where he was on a psychiatric hold.

His name has not been released.
