Loudon (WVLT) -- Loudon County deputies responded to a call today and found a GMC truck doing donuts in a parking lot on Highway 72 around noon.

Officers approached the vehicle and the driver took off.

Squad cars pursued him north on to Interstate 75 and then east onto Interstate 40 in Knox County.

The chase ended near the truck scales when officers deployed spike strips to blow out the truck's tires.

The man said he ran because he was driving a stolen vehicle.
