SALINA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a Colorado man has been arrested after a law enforcement chase across three Kansas counties.

The Hays Post reports that the driver told authorities he was trying to get to Oklahoma to see his mother before facing prison time in Colorado, where he has two outstanding felony arrest warrants.

Saline County Sheriff’s Captain Brent Melander says the chase started Wednesday after deputies stopped the vehicle, which had an expired Colorado temporary tag.

The 24-year-old Loveland, Colorado, man who was behind the wheel said he had no driver’s license or identification and sped off as the deputy returned to his vehicle. An 18-year-old Fort Collins, Colorado, was a passenger in the fleeing vehicle.

Melander says the chase ended when Marion County deputies were able to puncture the vehicle’s tires.
