The rightful owner of a forklift was found on Sunday when a man was arrested after stealing it and leading police on a chase.

Police in Harris County, Texas received a call about a man driving a tractor down Hardy Road and attempting to proceed onto a tollway.

Once deputies caught up to the man, they realized it was actually a forklift he was driving. After trying to pull him over, deputies realized that he was going to refuse to stop.

The suspect then sped up to reach the high, high speed of 18 miles per hour, authorities told ABC 13.

After nearly a 20-minute chase, deputies said the man finally came to a stop near the intersection of Hardy and Egypt.

He was taken into custody without incident.


The suspect has been identified as 38-year-old Justin David Brown, and he was charged by Harris County with evading.

No injuries were reported.
