MT. JULIET, Tenn. -

A man was charged with driving under the influence after he allegedly continued driving when officers attempted to pull him over Tuesday.

Mt. Juliet police had to deploy spike strips after 59-year-old Ronald Lambert, of Madison, led them on a short, low-speed pursuit around 9 p.m.

The incident began when officers received a call about a man passed out in an SUV. When they reached the area, they found the SUV driving the wrong way on Belinda Parkway.

Police say Lambert refused to stop when they flashed their blue lights and activated their sirens, so a spike strip was deployed.

Three of the SUV's tires became deflated, bringing the vehicle to an eventual stop.

Lambert was taken into custody at the Exxon on North Mt. Juliet Road.

He was arrested and charged with evading arrest, reckless endangerment and driving under the influence.

Last September, Lambert was arrested in Nashville for threatening to blow up police after he claimed to be Jesus.
