PORTLAND, TN (WSMV) -

A Portland police officer was involved in a crash following a high-speed chase Thursday afternoon near Interstate 65 in Sumner County.

Officers began chasing an SUV driven by Mike Jordan, because Jordan was allegedly waving what appeared to be a gun out his car window and running other cars off the road.

That gun turned out to be an air soft pistol.

Jordan's vehicle collided with a patrol car as the chase ended in a field near I-65 and State Route 52 in Portland.

No injuries have been reported, and it is unclear why Jordan fled from officers.
