Troopers started chasing the vehicle after someone reported it for driving actions that could indicate possible intoxication.

The chase came to a stop more than an hour later just beyond the Eisenhower Tunnel in Summit County, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The driver was taken into custody, but authorities have not released any additional information.
