Suspect arrested after high-speed chase

Posted: Updated:

A suspect is in custody after leading police on a high-speed chase through Dallas and Collin counties.

It began around 4:15 a.m. Monday when Dallas County Sheriff's deputies spotted a man passed out in a car on Interstate 35 near Medical District Drive.

As the deputies approached the man he drove off and a long, high-speed chase ensued.  The suspect drove through Farmers Branch, Carrollton, Lewisville, Plano and Allen.

It finally ended in Allen after the suspect turned off of Exchange Parkway and went the wrong way on Ridgeview Drive. He ran off the road into a field and tried to get away on foot.

Deputies were able quickly catch up to the man and arrest him.

He now faces charges for DWI and felony evading arrest.
