RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Glenn Fuselier is no stranger to the media - he's the teenager who, in 2006, mistakenly poured gasoline on a camp-fire and suffered severe burns.

On Wednesday, he was in the news again after a chase that ended with a crash, landing him in the hospital, and then at the Riverside Regional jail.

He'll be arraigned Friday afternoon on 10 charges, including attempted capital murder, felony child endangerment and eluding police.

Wednesday's hour-long chase started in Prince George County and crossed into several counties, ending with Fuselier crashing the van in Petersburg.

At times, the chase hit speeds of one hundred miles an hour.

Three young children were in the van with Fuselier.

He talked with NBC12 by phone Thursday, from his hospital bed.

"I got scared because I didn't have a license on me, so I decided to pull off and lose the cops," said Fuselier. "It's like the old saying goes: you made your bed, you got to lie in it."
