Phillip Knittle was arrested about 9 p.m. Tuesday in a Caldwell neighborhood, the Ada County Sheriff's Office reports.
Deputies pulled Knittle's vehicle over near the Meridian intersection of Ada and Main just after 6:30 p.m., but Knittle took off, the sheriff's office tweeted. Deputies pursued the vehicle down Interstate 84 to Caldwell, where spike strips stopped his vehicle around milepost 28, ACSO reports.
Knittle then reportedly fled on foot. Deputies searched the neighborhood until they found him in a shed, the sheriff’s office reports.
Knittle was wanted on a $250,000 warrant for failing to appear for a district court arraignment on several other charges: drug trafficking, possession of both drugs and paraphernalia, and providing false information to an officer. Online court records say he will now be arraigned on those charges in 3rd District Court Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators found meth in the car they pursued, and Knittle is expected to face additional charges stemming from the pursuit.
