Troopers threw down spikes, popping three tires. After riding the rims, the driver finally stopped and surrendered.

"A drunk driver driving down the road in and of itself is dangerous. But when he wants to blow off public safety, it was definitely imperative that we get him off the road," said Sgt. Ellis Alexander of the Utah Highway Patrol.

Officers found open containers of alcohol in the car.
