BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. -- A truck driver is facing life in prison after police said he led them on a wild chase on I-94 last week.

Michigan State Police said Ronald Jiles, 38, of California, allegedly swerved in and out of traffic during the chase and even hit a few cars and constructions cones. It started in Indiana, when they were notified by officials there about Jiles' reckless driving.

When he crossed into Michigan, state police chased him. It went on for several miles before he jack-knifed off the road near Exit 22 on I-94. Once he stopped, police approached him with a police dog.  He allegedly punched the dog in the head several times before police used a Taser to subdue and arrest him.

Jiles was arraigned Tuesday on seven charges, including assault with intent to murder.  He faces life in prison if convicted. Police said they believe he may have been under the influence of drugs during the chase.

    Good job to the police. The police get a real bad rape these days, I would like those haters to take the place of any one of these officers involved. Once again, kudos to the cops! Job well done!
