The suspect, 27-year-old Tyler Karhut, of Toronto, was confronted by police at a rest stop on Route 213 after law enforcement found him sleeping in his car with a gun on his lap.
Karhut had several warrants for his arrest from the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
The pursuit ended in McDonald, Pa., where Karhut was taken into custody by local police and was processed at the Washington County Jail.
