HENRY CO., AL (WSFA) -

A routine traffic stop in Henry County Tuesday afternoon led to a high-speed chase and arrest.

Henry County Sheriff Will Maddox says a deputy attempted a traffic stop around 2:30 p.m. on Highway 431 near Abbeville but the vehicle wouldn't stop.

The driver continued in the northbound lane on Highway 431 reaching speeds over 100 mph. In Headland that chase continued onto Early Walden Road.

When that road came to a dead end, the driver turned onto County Road 13 and wrecked. He then fled on foot and deputies were able to apprehend him.

The vehicle is believed to have been stolen.
