PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. -- A man driving a recreational vehicle with a loaded gun and drugs inside has been arrested after leading Paradise Valley police on a high-speed chase, authorities said Tuesday.

Zane Cane, 42, was being held on suspicion of criminal speeding, reckless driving, failure to yield to police, driving with an expired registration and without a driver's license, and failing to provide identification.

Police said he repeatedly called 911 during the ordeal Monday -- claiming the traffic stop was unlawful -- and made little sense when talking to officers.

A police report stated that Cane "was making radical statements about the government and comparing the stop to Nazi Germany."

An officer doing speed enforcement at about 8 p.m. had noticed the RV speeding. Police said it failed to stop and the chase exceeded 70 mph before the RV pulled over.

Police said Cane spoke to officers through a small rear window of the RV and officers couldn't see inside the vehicle because several of its windows were covered.

A rear window was broken and pepper spray was deployed inside the RV before Cane exited the vehicle and was handcuffed.

A search warrant was obtained and police said they found nearly 59 grams of marijuana, a white-brown powdery substance in containers and a loaded .45-caliber Glock 21 handgun inside the RV.

Cane has a valid medical marijuana card, according to police. His hometown wasn't immediately available and it was unclear if he has a lawyer.
