MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)- Memphis Police have arrested a man accused of shooting at an 18-wheeler on I-240 Friday night.

According to an affidavit, the driver was headed Northbound on I-240 near South Parkway, when he noticed someone in a white Tahoe was shooting at his vehicle.

Officers caught up with the Tahoe, just a few miles away from Elvis Presley and Alcy.

Memphis Police then searched the Tahoe finding a semi-automatic handgun inside of a pink backpack. Investigators say the shell casings from the scene match the gun found inside of the truck.

Police say he is also wanted for burglary and theft.

Jones is expected to see a judge Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.
