    A Jonesboro police officer went to a hospital and a detainee in the backseat of a cop car went out the back window with the vehicle flipped.

    The man in the backseat of the cruiser, 19-year-old Logan Younger, appears to pull a lighter out of his pants right before the crash. As he lights the lighter, the car flips and he's ejected out of the rear window. 

    Officer Justin Thompson was injured and trapped in the vehicle, according to the Jonesboro Police Department. He had to be extricated by the Jonesboro Fire Department.

    Thompson was conscious and talking but is still undergoing tests to determine the nature and extent of his injuries.

    Younger fled the scene but was caught a short time later.
