Mark Martinez, 26, arrested after DPS says he stole a truck from a construction site in north Phoenix.

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A suspected drunk driver was arrested in Yavapai County after the Arizona Department of Public Safety said he stole a truck from a construction site and led troopers on a pursuit north of the Phoenix area. 

According to DPS Trooper Kameron Lee, 26-year-old Mark Martinez, stole a barricade truck from a construction site near Interstate 17 and Pinnacle Peak Road at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday.

DPS was able to locate the truck on the I-17 near Loop 303. DPS troopers caught up to the truck and attempted to make a traffic stop. 

Lee said the driver failed to stop and led the troopers on a pursuit northbound on the I-17 towards Yavapai County. 

The truck left the freeway where it entered a muddy area and came to a stop. 

Troopers took Martinez into custody and he was booked into the Camp Verde Jail on charges of DUI, unlawful flight and criminal damage.
