    A 24-year-old man is under arrest after leading police on a chase through the streets of Miami Gardens, all while talking to his mother on the phone.

    Antonio Jackson was taken into custody after the chase ended with him hitting a Miami Gardnes police car at the corner of NW 5th Avenue and Miami Gardens Dr.

    Police say the original crime in the whole incident took place near NW 191st Street and 27th Avenue. Jackson led police on I-95 before getting off and going through the streets of Miami Gardens.

    His mother, who would only identify herself as Angie, told NBC 6 that Jackson was on the phone with her the whole time and that she told him to pull over near her location.
