GLOBE, Ariz. -- Authorities have arrested a 30-year-old man accused of shooting at a tribal police officer during a highway traffic stop in eastern Arizona.

San Carlos Tribal Police Chief Alejandro Benally says Christopher Delmar was taken into custody at about 1:20 p.m. Sunday but declined to reveal how he was apprehended.

Benally says officers responding to a disturbance early Sunday saw a car going in the opposite direction. They say the vehicle matched the description of one involved in the disturbance.

Benally says Delmar led officers on a high speed chase onto the US-70, southeast of the city of Globe.

Authorities say Delmar came to a stop in the desert and fired at an officer as he was getting out of his vehicle.

The officer returned fire but nobody was injured.
