GREENDALE -- A&E's "Live PD" featured a local Wisconsin police department chasing a man who was caught siphoning gas and refusing to stop during the police chase.  

The driver of the truck made continuous U-Turns, blew stop signs and more until a spike strip blew out his tires. 

With blown tires and a gun pointed at him, he threw his truck into reverse in an attempt to get away. Eventually, a squad car was able to nudge the back-end of the truck, forcing it to spin out. 

The suspect is facing felony charges of eluding an officer, recklessly endangering safety and misdemeanor counts of theft and resisting arrest, according to court records. 

If convicted, the man faces up to 15 years in prison.
