Flint Assembly placed on lockdown when truck slams through front gate after high-speed chase

GM Flint Assembly was on lock-down this morning after a high speed chase ends with a van ramming through the front gate.

The suspect is now in custody.

Flint police tell NBC25 that the chase started on Victoria Street where a man in a white truck failed to stop.

During the chase the suspect drove right through the Bristol Road entrance at the plant, where he ended up in the parking lot containing all of the new trucks.

The suspect then exited the truck and fled on foot.

The plant was placed on lockdown while police brought in a K-9 unit from the Michigan State Police to help track down the suspect.

Authorities tell NBC25 that the suspect was arrested at his home this morning.
