GAUTIER, Miss. (AP) — A standoff has ended between Mississippi authorities and a truck driver armed with a machete.
News outlets report officers used tear gas to get the suspect out of the truck. Information has not been released on the charges he will face.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol says there were no injuries.
The interstate is back open.
The situation began shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday when authorities in Alabama pursued the 18-wheeler. That chase continued into Mississippi, coming to an end just east of the Gautier Vancleave Road exit.
Authorities have not said what sparked the initial pursuit.
