JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies said they finally caught up to a man after he took a moving truck on a wild ride.

Deputies were called to south JeffCo on reports of a domestic violence incident involving a man and a woman in the cab of a U-Haul truck at about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday.

When deputies arrived the truck was gone but it was located a short time later in the Morrison area. Deputies stopped the truck at the intersection of Quincy and Eldridge.

The woman got out of the truck and the driver, later identified as Jarrett Stoner, took off.

Stoner rammed a deputy’s patrol car head-on and then continued east into Denver where he collided with two more cars after running a stop sign at Sheridan Blvd. and Quincy Ave.

The drivers of the two cars and the deputy were not injured.

Deputies said Stoner continued about another block before abandoning the U-Haul truck. He then ran into a 7-Eleven convenience store where he attempted to steal a truck.

The occupants of the truck did not cooperate and after a brief struggle were able to hold him until police took him into custody.

The U-Haul truck was stolen out of Denver.

Stoner has been booked into the Jefferson County Jail for a variety of felony and misdemeanor charges. He is scheduled to appear in court at 10 a.m. on Thursday.
