PHOENIX -- A truck driver was arrested Saturday after leading Phoenix police on a bizarre chase.

Police received a 911 call about 3:30 a.m. reporting that a truck was driving far below the speed limit.

When officers arrived, the driver sped up. The man drove onto the sidewalk and had some near misses but eventually stopped near Seventh Avenue and Camelback Road.

Officers believe he may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
