When deputies arrived, they said the driver sped off and was pursued onto I-840, where troopers with the Tennessee Highway Patrol spiked his front tires, causing both to blow.

The suspect continued driving on the blown tires, traveling west on Interstate 40 into Davidson County, where investigators said he exited onto Old Hickory Boulevard and crashed in the parking lot of the Rodeway Inn.

Deputies said they were able to take the driver into custody. He was transported to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, according to the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators are still working to identify the driver because they said he was carrying fraudulent identification.

No additional information was immediately released, including the charges against the suspect and whether anyone else was arrested.
