NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A multi-county pursuit ended on Interstate 24 northwest of downtown Nashville late Monday night.

Bright traveled into Davidson County where he traveled up I-24 and then turned back toward Nashville.

Spike strips were used to stop the vehicle Bright drove, which then crashed into a ditch on the side of the roadway.

He ran the vehicle off the roadway on I-24 and then fled from the vehicle on foot.

Bright was immediately taken into custody by officers.

He is charged with Evading Arrest, Reckless Endangerment, Driving on a Suspended License, Drug Paraphernalia, and Light Law.
