Phoenix police arrested a man they believe shot at a grounded airplane parked at Deer Valley Airport early Sunday.
Police say Randon Reid, 26, was likely drunk when he fled the airport about 1:30 a.m. after officers heard gunfire in the area while on patrol, said Phoenix Police spokesman Steve Martos.
"The officers observed a vehicle speed away from the area," Martos stated. "Officers obtained a license plate and attempted a traffic stop."
However, Reid continued to flee at a high rate of speed, police said. The officers arrested Reid at his home and located two weapons believed to have been used during the shooting. At the airport, police recovered shell casings at the scene and discovered an airplane was damaged by gunfire.
Reid refused to speak with officers and was arrested on suspicion of aggravated DUI, felony flight and two outstanding warrants.
Investigators were working to contact the owner of the plane.
