ALMA, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say they’ve arrested three people after a 40-mile high-speed chase across multiple Michigan counties.

The Morning Sun reports (https://bit.ly/2oTUgtp ) that police in Gratiot County were searching Friday for a suspect who allegedly punched an elderly man in a grocery store and tried to take his groceries. Authorities pursued a car on U.S. 127 matching the description of one linked to the incident.

After a chase that hit speeds of 110 mph, police arrested the female driver for fleeing and eluding authorities and for outstanding warrants from multiple counties. Two men in the car were also arrested, with one reportedly fitting the description of the person accused of assaulting the elderly man.

No one was injured in the chase.
