Police arrest North Carolina man after chase in Little Rock

     (AP) – Authorities say a North Carolina man wanted on assault
charges has been arrested after a police pursuit in Arkansas.
     Arkansas State Police say a state trooper pulled over a pickup truck in Little
Rock at about 9 a.m. Tuesday because it was swerving through traffic on
Interstate 30. State police say the driver then led authorities on a chase onto
Interstate 440, but was stopped after troopers rammed his truck and shot out a
tire on the truck.
     Troopers then arrested the driver, 46-year-old Robert Woodward of Gastonia,
North Carolina, and a passenger in his truck.
     Police say Woodward is wanted for escape, assault with a weapon and assault on
a law enforcement officer. State police said he would be booked into the Pulaski
County jail in Little Rock.
