A 35-year-old man let Phoenix police on a pursuit through valley streets on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say they pulled Noel Acosta over for a traffic stop near 27th Avenue and Buckeye.

As an officer approached his vehicle, Acosta allegedly tried to back his car into him and then sped off.

According to police, Acosta didn't get onto the freeway, obeyed all traffic signals and didn't weave in and out of traffic.

Although, police say they believe he tossed a bag of drugs out the window at some point.

Throughout the pursuit, Acosta was talking on the phone with family members.

Officers backed off while their helicopter continued following him.

Police ran his license plate number and showed up at his family's home.

Officers say they got on the phone with Acosta and negotiated with him to surrender.

Acosta pulled into Shaw Butte Elementary School, near Cactus Road and 21st Avenue, and cameo out with his hands above his head.

Sgt. Steve Martos says Acosta faces assault and drug charges, and was on parole for another crime.
