A deputy went to the scene and found a white minivan being driven by 37-year-old George Nickolaos Bourbous of Durham.
Authorities say for an unknown reason, Bourbous then took off north towards Garner and Raleigh.
As he drove through downtown Raleigh toward Capital Boulevard, police threw out a STOP STICK tire deflation device, but Bourbous managed to avoid it.
Never exceding speeds of 60 mph, Bourbous allegedly ran red lights and headed toward Franklin County.
Wake Forest police were called in to assist almost 30 minutes after the chase started. They were able to deploy more STOP STICKs and deflate Bourbous' tires, causing him to stop near Burlington Mills Road without incident.
EMS was dispatched to the scene and it appeared Bourbous was taken to Northern WakeMed Hospital after restraints were brought to the scene.
Bourbous has been charged with an assortment of traffic violations.
