NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (AP) - Police in Central Texas have arrested a man who they say led officers on a high-speed chase along the interstate before flipping his vehicle.

KSAT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/11H5AMu ) the 37-year-old Austin man was charged Sunday with evading arrest and driving while intoxicated with an open container. His identity hasn’t been released.

The New Braunfels Police Department says officers engaged the suspect after several calls about a reckless driver on Interstate 35. They say his Nissan sedan reached speeds of 90 mph before he traveled across a grassy median in Schertz.

The vehicle became airborne before crashing into a fence. Police say the man fled from the overturned vehicle but an officer shot him with a stun gun. They say a passenger hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries likely won’t be charged.
