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.

Many stop sticks have been applied to truck, but like a bull facing smaller matadors armed with swords, it keeps going. pic.twitter.com/T73uUzkYFW— Ted Haller (@TedHallerFox9) May 10, 2017
