Mt. Juliet officers set out spike strips to stop the truck, which deflated three of its tires. The driver continued on, resulting in a low speed chase.

The truck continued on Lebanon Pike, ending at Old Hickory Blvd, where the driver of the truck got out, ran inside a CVS, and tried to make access to the roof.

He was taken into custody and told officers that he ingested a large amount of drugs.

No one was injured, but the suspect sideswiped two civilian cars causing minor damage.
