FORT WORTH – What started as a very slow-speed chase in Fort Worth took a dangerous turn Wednesday afternoon forcing  SWAT to take this guy down.

And when we say slow, we mean slow! Try 5-10 mph.

The suspect creeped down eastbound I-30 for nearly two hours, paralyzing traffic. Drivers actually  jumped out their cars, lined up along the highway to see what was going on.

Things got wild once the unidentified suspect hit Arlington, picked up speed, turned off into a residential neighborhood, and even went the wrong way before jumping back on the highway.

Did we mention this all was going on with one of his tires blown out?

SWAT eventually said “enough is enough” and conducted a PIT Maneuver, bringing this chase to  a dramatic end right in the middle of the highway near Six Flags.

It’s unclear what set off this chase in the first place.
