DPS: Man said he was 'having a bad day' after leading troopers on Phoenix chase

A police chase in Phoenix ended with the suspect's arrest during the evening hours of June 30.

For some time, the suspect involved in the chase was headed north on I-17, and he was seen driving a red pickup with a camper shell added to the bed.

The Arizona Dept. of Public Safety said Chandlar Contadino refused to stop for troopers on Interstate 10 near 40th Street Wednesday evening. The 25-year-old led authorities on a chase across three freeways, hitting speeds of more than 100 miles per hour.
