KOIN-TV reports that Craig Ferrero was arrested Friday on suspicion of criminal mischief, reckless driving, reckless endangering and unlawful use of a vehicle.

Dozens of police officers pursued the dump truck that left the freeway. It finally stopped on Southwest Barbur Boulevard after spike strips shredded its tires.
