A motorcycle rider burst into flames after being hit with an electroshock weapon by a cop during a pursuit in Arkansas, according to reports.
The harrowing incident unfolded in Little Rock at around 1:15 a.m. on October 13, but dash cam footage just surfaced this week.
An Arkansas State Police trooper attempted to stop Christopher Gaylor, 38, after he was observed riding a motorcycle without a visible license plate.
Gaylor refused to pull over and led officers on a high-speed chase, topping 100 mph at times, authorities say.
The pursuit came to an end when Gaylor dumped his bike and took off on foot in a residential neighborhood.
What transpired next was captured on camera.
