ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) - A man led officers on a chase from Weatherford to Arlington along Interstate-30 early Thursday morning, authorities say.

According to police, the incident began at a truck stop in Weatherford when an officer ran a license plate that came back as a reportedly stolen vehicle out of Denton.
