ST. PAUL, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say they have arrested a man who led police on a high-speed chase reaching up to 110 miles per hour through three Nebraska counties.

The Grand Island Independent (https://bit.ly/1Byd8fl ) reports the Wednesday pursuit started after Howard County Chief Deputy Mike Hoff tried to stop a vehicle for speeding on Highway 11.

Officials say the driver of the vehicle didn’t pull over and instead fled, leading authorities on a chase through Howard, Greeley and Valley counties. Hoff says he saw the driver throw bags of controlled substances out of the window.

Law enforcement officers were eventually able to stop the vehicle about 45 minutes after the chase began. The driver was arrested and taken to Valley County Jail.
