RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - An update about the teenager accused of leading police on a high speed chase with children in the backseat. During a bond appeal hearing this morning, a judge reversed a decision granting bond to Glenn Fuselier Junior.

Prosecutors say fuselier is a danger to society. The teen faces ten charges, including attempted capital murder and child endangerment.

19 year old Glen Fuselier is facing 10 charges - six of them are felonies - all of them stemming from a police pursuit.

Police later discovered Fuselier had three young children in the car.

Fuselier reached speeds of around 100 miles per hour through several counties ending in Petersburg.

When he stands in front of a judge Wednesday for his bond hearing, he'll likely hear about the 10 charges he's facing, six of which are felonies, including attempted capital murder and child endangerment.

Police say Fuselier tried to run troopers off the road, then ran his van into a state police car.

The impact, police say, is what caused Fuselier to lose control of the van and flip over onto Crater Road, where the chase ended.

We talked with Fuselier just days after the crash while he was recovering in the hospital.

"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.'"

Fuselier made headlines back in 2006 when he fought for his life after being severely burned in a campfire. He's now facing another fight: a fight for his freedom.
