Authorities Arrest Man After Vehicle Pursuit

Authorities Arrest Man After Vehicle Pursuit

An early-morning pursuit on one of the valley’s busiest roadways ended in an arrest on Sunday.

Tempe police received a report around 3 a.m. of a possible drunk driver with a flat tire. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle near Scottsdale and McKellips roads but were unsuccessful. Troopers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety then followed the driver through Mesa, Peoria, Glendale and Scottsdale on the Loop 101 freeway before he lost control of the car near Scottsdale and Indian Bend roads.

DPS troopers pursued the suspect on foot and arrested him. His identity has not yet been made public.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
