The driver failed to stop and sped off leading authorities on a 26 mile chase. Authorities used spike strips to stop the vehicle.

As deputies approached the driver, 29-year-old Aaron Peterson, began to exit the vehicle with a shotgun in his hand. A deputy used his squad to pin the driver's door to prevent Peterson from getting out.

After a brief standoff, Peterson put down the shotgun and was arrested. He faces charges of fleeing a peace officer, possession of a controlled substance and multiple gun violations.
