"We were able to get ahead of him and get the spike strips down that was a big advantage," said Cole.
"Getting him on that gravel with that tire down to the rim that slowed him down a lot where he couldn't maintain control.
That is when Sheriff Cole took matters into his own hands to end the chase.
"I took another country road and cut up through some fields, got ahead of him, and basically hid in the bushes along the fence road until a couple minutes later when he came trotting up," said Cole.
The suspect was apprehended ending a 3 state and over 80 mile chase outside of Piggott.
"The subject has a 15 page criminal history, he's been arrested for kidnapping, assault with severe injury, assault on a law enforcement officer, drug trafficking, and also burglary," said Cole.
"It's an exciting way to close out the year I just hope we don't have any more between now and January 1," said Cole.
