The Virginia State Police has still not named the suspect, but has now said that the chase covered a total of approximately 60 miles before the driver apparently came to a stop after hitting a curb. At one point, the pursuit took place on Interstate 95, at a maximum speed of about 40MPH.
The vehicle was taken from the Fort Pickett National Guard base in Virginia on Tuesday and was driven at speed through the state capital, Richmond.
The vehicle has been returned to Fort Pickett with no significant damage, officials said. About a half-dozen Capitol Police officers with combat-style rifles were guarding the entrance to Capitol Square.
The driver, who police later confirmed is a soldier, ended the pursuit on his own accord but was not complying with commands, and was tased, state police say.
