High-speed car chase ended after motorist pursued by police accidentally shot his own tyres

Police say a high-speed car chase ended when the suspect accidentally shot out his own tyres.

Police in Des Moines, Iowa, attempted to stop 24-year-old Taylor Parker for a traffic violation. The man allegedly took off and led police on a short pursuit.

While still driving, police say Parker threw a shotgun out of the car, and the gun then fired off a round, shooting out the tyres of the car he was driving.

He then jumped out of the car, took off on foot, and was eventually caught by the officer. Police say that Parker was found with a "significant quantity" of meth. He was arrested and charged with possession with intent to deliver and possession of a weapon.
