An Oregon took police on a chase in a backhoe and lost.

The chase lasted more than 30 miles, before getting caught by police. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office tells KGW8 39-year-old Mitchell Johnston allegedly stole the backhoe and drove it on Highway 217, I-5 and I-205 to Clackamas on Sunday before being spotted by an Oregon State Police trooper.

Johnston was driving 10 to 20 miles an hour on the wrong side of the road when he was pulled over and arrested. He was driving with a revoked license.
