ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There is new information about the man who drove his burning pickup through downtown Albuquerque Thursday with police in hot pursuit.
Elias Miranda told officers he was upset because traffic was blocked for a movie shoot. So he flicked his cigarette onto a T-shirt in the back of the pickup.
That set off a fire that quickly got out of control. Miranda refused to stop until he finally crashed near Eighth Street SW and Lead Avenue.
He broke into a nearby house where police finally got him.
Miranda has an arrest warrant for drugs in Colorado and is being held here on a no bond hold.
