Deputies say they arrested a man after a high-speed pursuit in Brooke County Tuesday night.

Officials say at around 11:00 PM a deputy passed a driver that they knew had a suspended license and when they tried to pull the vehicle over the deputy was led on a pursuit.

Brooke County deputies say the pursuit reached over 100 M.P.H.

Deputies say the man driving the vehicle crashed into a guard rail near the coke plant in Follansbee on Route 2.

The man was able to get out of his vehicle and jumped over the guard rail and led deputies on a foot pursuit.

Deputies say that’s when they released K9 Kane who was able to capture the driver.

“Being such a small county and dealing with a lot of the same people over and again it’s easy for our Deputies to pick up on certain drivers. It was a good arrest and it got the bad guy off the road.”
