On Friday morning, police chased a U-Haul through the streets of Miami, before the driver of the vehicle was ultimately caught, ABC reported.

The U-Haul truck was stopped by police around 10:45 a.m. MT in a video obtained by a news chopper.

Police then smashed the driver’s side window to get to the man who was fleeing from the police.

The authorities swarmed the vehicle to drag the man out of the U-Haul, and then wrestled the driver to the ground.

The chopper video showed the U-Haul getting stuck in traffic around 10:30 a.m. MT.

Details surrounding the case are unclear, but social media users have taken to Twitter to discuss the chase, with some poking fun at the event.
