fullsize only, I am a lawyer. I am an Arkansas lawyer, and have been so licensed for the past 10 years. I'm unaware of any Arkansas law that has the effect that you've mentioned.
Edited to add: Fleeing can become a felony, as you noted, but based on the statute above, the operative fact appears to be how one flees (for example, "a person purposely operates the vehicle or conveyance in such a manner that creates a substantial danger of death or serious physical injury to another person" Ark. Code Ann. § 5-54-125 (West)), not the crime from which a person flees.
I'm a lawyer, but I'm not your lawyer. If you need some honest-to-goodness legal advice, go buy some.
