A 28-year-old Miami man was arrested by the Florida Highway Patrol after a chase down I-75 Friday morning.

Pedro Puron faces charges of grand theft, resisting an officer, and several moving traffic violations after the chase.

A Toyota Camry stolen from Miami-Dade County failed to stop when FHP troopers tried to pull it over, troopers said. After driving away from troopers, the car eventually crashed on I-75 at MM 124 in Estero.
