The trucker, from Salina, was being held Friday in the Pottawatomie County jail in Westmoreland.
Authorities say the chase began late Thursday after the trucker rammed his 18-wheel semitrailer into a pickup on I-70 just west of Topeka. There were also reports the semi was forcing other vehicles off the highway.
The semi, followed by both the pickup and authorities, headed west. It exited I-70 at Kansas 99 and continued north through Wamego and the smaller town of Louisville, where it rammed a car.
The chase ended early Friday when the rig became stuck in a yard.
The identity of the man has not been released.
