A suspect was arrested early Saturday morning following a high-speed chase in south-central Kansas.

The chase began in Harvey County, went through Reno County and finally ended just north of Pratt.

Deputies from all three counties were pursuing a vehicle around 4 a.m. on southbound K-61 in Reno County. The suspect crossed into Pratt County at nearly 120 miles-per-hour, said Sheriff Vernon Chinn. The vehicle was disabled by stop sticks and forced off the road about four miles north of Pratt.

The driver was arrested and taken back to Harvey County to face charges of flee and elude, reckless driving and being a felon in possession of a firearm. A passenger was released.

Details about what led up to the chase were not provided and suspect’s name wasn’t released.
