Authorities say a woman was checking on a property, and when she returned, she found the man trying to drive off.

She tried pulling him out, but he punched her, saying he'd kill her and her two-year-old son.

The man crashed the truck into a concrete wall and took off.

He was arrested after leading police on a long chase.
