SHARP COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – An Imboden man was arrested after police officers chased him for over 40 miles Thursday.

Ravenden police officer, John Keding, tried to stop a truck on Highway 63 for traffic violations. The truck sped off, heading into Sharp County.

Arkansas State Trooper, Fred Dail, was driving on Highway 63 close to the county line when the truck illegally passed him. He attempted to pull the truck over, but the driver refused to stop.

Officer Dail then followed the vehicle for about 40 miles before it was stopped on Highway 354 in Ash Flat by the Cherokee Village Police Chief  Rick Crook.

During the pursuit, the truck drove very fast and forced other cars off of the road.

The driver of the truck, Christopher S. Woodson, 40, was arrested and taken to the Sharp County Sheriff's Department.

Woodson admitted to snorting bath salts for the past three days. He also told police that he swallowed a half gram of meth after the first officer got behind him.

Woodson is being held in the Sharp County Jail and will be charged with several felonies.
