A man was arrested after leading police on a chase.

Shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday morning, police were called to the Vegas Club on East Admiral. Officers arrived and heard a gunshot. Then, they saw a white truck speeding from the parking lot.

They chased him to a QuikTrip next to the Eastside Police Station at 11th and Highway 169. During the chase, the suspect drove off into a grassy area and blew a front tire. Officers made the driver get out of the truck with their weapons drawn.

They did find a loaded revolver inside the pickup. Police booked the driver on charges of reckless discharge of a firearm, driving under the influence, and eluding. Police said he did have an open carry permit.

Yeah lets hear it for the open carry law. They gave an Irresponsible drunk a license to carry a gun. Alcoholics and drug addicts should not be allowed to carry a gun.
