Standoff ends, driver held in Texas stolen truck incident

GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) – A Texas standoff involving an 18-wheeler reported stolen has safely ended with the driver captured.

Officers didn’t immediately identify the man detained Wednesday afternoon about two hours after the incident began.

The slow chase began late Wednesday morning on Interstate 30 east of Dallas. It ended nearly an hour later, on a service road near Greenville, about 45 miles away.

The rig was pulling a trailer with Intrade Industries Inc. on the side. It came to a halt at a dead end near I-30. The truck was stopped for about an hour when an officer in an armored-type vehicle fired into the front windshield.

The man got out, along with a dog.

Fresno, California-based Intrade Industries didn’t immediately return messages seeking information about the rig.
