A speeder on Highway 71 in Banner County has been arrested after leading a NSP Trooper on a high speed chase that resulted in his car sliding off the road.

Shortly before midnight on Monday night, a trooper clocked a southbound vehicle going 82 miles per hour in the 65 miles per hour zone. The trooper activated his emergency lights to try to get the vehicle to stop, but instead the driver accelerated.

A secondary radar clock of the vehicle read 124 miles per hour, and at 11:37 p.m,  the trooper observed brake lights and believed the driver’s vehicle slid into the west ditch. The trooper contacted the driver at gunpoint and had the driver exit the vehicle and handcuffed him.
