LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– A person was arrested after a vehicle stop near the Las Vegas Strip turned into a barricade.

On Wednesday, around 3:30 p.m. Las Vegas Metro police attempted to pull over a suspicious vehicle near Paradise Road and Winnick Avenue when the driver began to drive recklessly and at one point drove up onto a sidewalk, according to police.

Officers were eventually able to stop the vehicle near Koval Lane and Flamingo Road.

Before the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames officers were able to get the man out of the vehicle, Captain Joshua Bitsko with the Metropolitan Police Department told 8 News Now.

The suspect was then taken to UMC but was not injured due to the vehicle fire.

Road closures are to be expected from Flamingo and Koval, eastbound towards University Center Drive.
