    One person has been taken into custody after a chase in Fort Worth.

    Police said Friday afternoon that officers working a scrap metal investigation on the 700 block of Throckmorton when they spotted a vehicle that had twice eluded them.  They tried to stop the driver, and the chase ensued.

    The chase wound through the north side for about a half hour before police were able to successfully deploy spike strips to flatten the driver's tires.

    With three flattened tires, the driver pulled over and surrendered at a 7-Eleven Blandin Street and NE 28th Street.

    The driver, whose name has not yet been released, was wanted on a felony warrant for auto theft and will now face additional charges of evading arrest.
