The officer first saw the truck along mile marker 74 along interstate 80, and the chase continued all the way along I-80 onto the Marne Exit. Officials say they tried to use "stop sticks" to deflate his tires so he would stop the vehicle.

He ended up all the way in Pottawattamie County which means he was evading officers for almost ten miles.

Samstad has four warrants out for him in four states.
