One person was taken into custody after a police pursuit ended at the arrival terminal at Nashville International Airport.

The incident was reported before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday at 1 Terminal Drive.

Metro Nashville Police officers surrounded a white car at the airport after a driver allegedly wouldn't stop for officers on Donelson Pike. 

Officials said an officer tried to stop the man for driving on a flat tire but he was slow to pull over and continued driving towards the airport. 

Eventually, he got out of his vehicle and was put in the back of an undercover squad car. The driver reportedly matched the description of a robbery suspect. 

The suspect’s vehicle was towed from the scene. 

A Metro Police captain said he's being questioned at the Hermitage Police precinct.

This was not a high-speed pursuit. The car was only going about 10 mph because the suspect was driving on rims.
