BOISE -- A 38-year-old Meridian man has been arrested after police said he led them on a chase and then refused to surrender once his vehicle was disabled.

Police shut down Highway 21 near Columbia Village in southeast Boise Sunday evening while officers attempted to take Bryce Tremblay into custody.

Officers on scene told KTVB it all started as a domestic dispute at about 5 p.m. During a physical altercation, Tremblay broke a phone being used to contact police and kicked in a door.

Tremblay drove away in a pickup truck as police arrived. He refused to stop for police sirens and lights, and sped up to over 70 mph during the pursuit. Officers used a PIT maneuver to stop him near the intersection of Highway 21 and E. Grand Forest Drive.

During the pursuit officers received information that Tremblay may be armed with a handgun. Once stopped, he refused to get out of his pickup and the highway was shut down. He eventually emerged from the truck, but would not surrender. An Ada County Sheriff's deputy deployed a 40mm foam round in an attempt to take him into custody. Boise Police officers then shot him with a Taser and Tremblay was arrested. Police did find a handgun in the truck.

Tremblay was booked into the Ada County Jail on charges of eluding police, resisting and obstructing, malicious injury to property, assault, and destruction of a telecommunication device.
