PASCO, Wash. -

Pasco Police say a chase ended this weekend after a man ran himself over with his own car. It happened just after midnight on Sunday.

Officers were dispatched to a report of a loud crash in the area of Sylvester and 26th. Sergeant Chad Pettijohn was in the area and found a silver Toyota Camry pulling out of the alley next to the Day Wireless building and running on a flat tire.The driver refused to stop and the chase started south on 7th from Bonneville. The flat tire eventually fell off the left front wheel and rolled down the street, but the chase continued, going through downtown on Clark.

It finally came to an end on Adelia approaching Elm. The driver had the car almost to a stop before he bailed out of the car. He opened the door, jumped out and tried to run around the front of the car. The car was still rolling, hit the man and dragged him for a short way. Pursuing officers quickly grabbed him.

The man, identified as 20-year-old Brandon E. Arrieta, was booked in to Franklin County Jail for vehicle theft and eluding. He's also being investigated for additional misdemeanors like hit-and-run.

The whole thing was caught on police dashboard cameras. A portion of the pursuit was posted on the Pasco Police Department's Facebook page. You can watch it yourself below.
