[SUPER=03-Roanoke;]


The chase started when a Roanoke City officer tried to pull over a car that was spinning its wheels at Hershberger and Williamson Roads.
Police say the driver led the officer on a high-speed chase, causing him to run off the road and into the woods at the intersection of Hershberger and Plantation roads.
Another officer took over the chase, but lost control of his car in a sharp turn and ended up in the front yard of a home at the corner of Hollins Road and Shadwell.
His car then burst into flames-- but the officer did escape UN-harmed.
Police later arrested 22-year-old John Richard Hobson.
He's charged with felony eluding police and reckless driving.
Police say they found him at the Black Angus Nightclub just before 2 a.m.
