A man was arrested after nearly striking a Cheatham County deputy's vehicle, prompting a brief pursuit on Interstate 40. 

The incident happened early Thursday morning at mile marker 194. 

A deputy was on traffic control when a car traveled on the wrong side of the traffic cones and nearly struck the back of the car. 

The deputy tried to pull the car over but the driver allegedly didn’t stop until the McCrory Lane exit ramp. 

Metro Nashville Police officers were also called for backup. 

The driver was arrested for evading arrest. One of the passengers was also taken into custody for having marijuana.
