NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A driver was arrested after allegedly fleeing a traffic stop on Interstate 440.

The officer pulled the driver over near the West End exit at 2:10 a.m. Thursday.

As the officer was getting out of his car, the driver allegedly took off, made a U-turn across the median and hit a guardrail.

The officer drew a weapon, which is when the driver reportedly tossed a gun out of the window and surrendered.

A small amount of a marijuana was found inside the car, according to police.

The driver, whose name has not been released, was taken into custody.
