A man was in custody early Tuesday morning after he was seen driving erratically on Interstate 15.
Nevada Highway Patrol spotted the man driving wildly near the Tropicana Avenue exit around 1:30 a.m. Troopers went after him but he kept going and eventually NHP stopped their pursuit.

He was seen ditching his car by another NHP trooper and then NHP asked Las Vegas police for help looking with their helicopter. They found him on the roof of an equipment building near U.S. 95 and I-15 interchange.

They had him surrounded with canines before taking him into custody by 4 a.m.
