The video reveals a trooper and a motorcyclist involved in a dangerous police chase after the officer attempted to pull the man over for failing to display a license plate on his motorcycle. The situation escalates once the motorcyclist continues to refuse to stop, hitting speeds of over 120 miles per hour as they haphazardly zip along the dark freeway.

However, things go very wrong for the fleeing individual when the trooper chases after him and deploys his Taser, unintentionally igniting the motorcyclist’s backpack, which unbeknownst to the police officer, held an extra container of gasoline that had likely been leaking at some point during the high-speed incident.

The suspect's bag immediately erupts into flames and the man frantically attempts to put out the fire by running across the street and rolling around in the dirt as the cop races back to his car, shouting that he needs a fire extinguisher.
