A 38-year-old man burst into flames after being tased by an Arkansas trooper at the end of a vehicle pursuit earlier this month.

Christopher Gaylor was carrying a gallon of gasoline in his backpack when he was tased by the trooper, authorities say.

The incident happened in the early morning hours of Oct. 13, 4029TV reports.

An Arkansas State trooper tried pulling over Gaylor, who was traveling on his motorcycle and had no license plate exhibited, police say.

Authorities say Gaylor refused to stop and led troopers on a high-speed pursuit, which ended when he jumped off his bike and ran.
