HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A man from Chesapeake, Ohio now faces four counts of attempted murder of a police officer following a high speed chase on I-64.

The chase started near Kenova and ended in Huntington about 11 a.m. Sunday.

29-year-old John McGlone was arrested after officers say he bailed out of the stolen truck he was driving and ran into into a wooded area.

Kenova Police say the incident began when an officer spotted a stolen 2002 Chevy Silverado with Ohio plates, but when he tried to pull McGlone over -- he took off.

McGlone was chased onto the eastbound lanes of I-64 where Cabell County Sheriff Deputies and West Virginia State Troopers set up spike strips, according to court documents.

Deputies say McGlone swerved as he approached the spike strips near the 29th Street exit in Huntington and tried to hit the officers while they were in the center median of the interstate.

The officers say McGlone drove a short distance before jumping out of the truck and fleeing on foot into the woods, where a foot pursuit ensued. The suspect was arrested after a short struggle.

Besides the four counts of attempted murder, McGlone is charged with two counts of fleeing and transferring and receiving stolen property.
