A 29-year-old man was on drugs when he drove a stolen armored military vehicle through the streets of Richmond, leading law enforcement on a chase, police said.
According to Virginia State Police spokesperson Corrine Geller, "The Virginia State Police began pursuit of the vehicle since receiving the initial report and traveled along with it from Nottoway County to the City of Richmond".
The armored vehicle was driven at a maximum speed of about 40 miles per hour, according to State Police.
Despite local outlets identifying the vehicle as a tank, Gizmodo reported it actually "appears to be an M577, a vehicle designed for use as a mobile command post by military officers or other support roles".
The tank-like vehicle exited interstate 95 at close to 9:30 p.m. on the Boulevard exit in Richmond.
