Troopers deployed more than a dozen stop sticks to halt the truck. But, despite hitting at least 8 to 10 sets of stop sticks, the truck continued to evade police for several more miles on deflated tires. 

The pursuit ended on Highway 10 near Foley Boulevard in Coon Rapids around 2:17 p.m. after a trooper used a PIT maneuver, causing the truck to hit the freeway wall and come to a stop. 

The driver was arrested and booked into the Sherbune County Jail. He was not injured.
