WACO, Texas — A slow-speed chase on I-35 caused traffic delays Wednesday morning.

Waco police said the incident started as a fight between two men around 7:45 a.m. near I-35 and New Road.

Officers got the call and followed the suspect up the interstate where they were, at times, traveling just 10 mph.

DPS joined the chase and deployed spike strips multiple times.

Police said troopers were able to stop the driver using a pit maneuver.

That's when an officer gently rams the suspect's vehicle with their patrol car, causing the suspect to lose control.

The man was taken into custody in Lacy Lakeview around 8:45 a.m.

Travon Bradley, 26, is charged with evading in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, and interference with a police service animal/K9.

Police said Bradley was seen holding his phone up during the chase possibly recording it.

His name has not been released.
