A police chase that began on Cape Cod came to an end Thursday evening in Middleboro.

Police said they had been looking for the driver after receiving reports that he was armed and threatening people. The chase began on Route 6 in Dennis and moved onto Route 25 and then I-495.

Police tried to stop the driver with spiked strips on the road but he kept driving on his deflated tires. His two front tires were eventually down to their rims by the time police stopped the suspect.

The driver eventually surrendered to police on the northbound side of I-495. He was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. Police said they found a fake gun in his pickup truck.
