A Summerville, S.C. man is facing a slew of charges after police say he stole a squad car and led them on a high-speed chase.

Dramatic dash cam video shows how officers were able to catch up with the suspect.

The pursuit began after an officer pulled over Arthur Thompson last week. He was suspected of trying to steal a computer from a local Wal-Mart.

Thompson fought with the officer and got Tasered twice before jumping into the squad car and taking off.

He was arrested a short time later after crashing into a truck.
