It started around 5:30 p.m. at a BP gas station, on the 1700 block of S. Federal Highway, officials said.
The driver was sitting in his car when Dean Francis Aubol, 34, walked up, forced him out of the vehicle and drove off. The victim gave police a description of his car and Aubol. An officer spotted the car near Broward Boulevard and Interstate 95, Detective DeAnna Greenlaw said.
The car was followed north on I-95 until it exited the highway and drove to 133 Lock Road, in Deerfield Beach. Aubol bailed out and ran into a nearby apartment complex. He was found and arrested after a short search, she said.
There were no known traffic crashes as a result of the chase, Greenlaw added.
