Taser blasts man’s backpack into flames


Video sent to 40/29 by Arkansas State Police shows a man’s backpack bursting into flames after being shocked by an Arkansas State Police trooper. Thirty-eight-year-old Christopher Gaylor is in hospital and should be fine. Authorities say the backpack he was carrying contained a gallon of gasoline, which started the fire. It happened Oct. 13 at 1:18 a.m. Avenue near Pine Street. Let me say he didn’t have a license plate on display. Authorities say Gaylor refused to stop and traveled at speeds of up to 100mph. Authorities say he ignored multiple stop signs and traffic lights. He encountered another state trooper as he headed down Interstate 30. The chase finally ended when he jumped off his motorcycle in North Little Rock and started running with troopers behind him. A soldier tried to use his taser to apprehend him, and that’s when Gaylor’s backpack caught fire. Authorities say he had a gallon of gasoline in his backpack that started the fire. Gaylor is in the hospital and should be fine. He faces charges of criminal flight, failure to register a vehicle, lack of liability insurance, driving with a suspended license and reckless driving. The state troopers involved are not subject to any disciplinary action.
