ASH FORK, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified the man they say led them on a 100-mile chase on a northern Arizona interstate over the weekend.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says 36-year-old Raul De La Rosa Giron faces charges of driving under the influence, fleeing authorities and resisting arrest.

DPS spokesman Bart Graves says the Texas man was jailed in Flagstaff.

Authorities say Giron was driving a tractor-trailer to California on Sunday when he turned around and headed back to Arizona on Interstate 40. Officers followed him from Kingman to Ash Fork, eventually puncturing the tires of his vehicle with spikes on the roadway.

The driver ran away and was caught and bitten by a police dog.

Graves says investigators don’t know the driver’s employer. Graves says he was hauling forklift equipment.
