A man was arrested after a chase from Weatherford to Arlington early Thursday morning.

Weatherford police said the high-speed chase started around 2:30 a.m. after officers in Weatherford spotted a stolen car at a truck stop.

The driver reportedly sped off as officers approached. They used spike strips several times but he continued driving on sparking rims into Arlington.

The car finally came to a stop along Interstate 30 near Fielder Road. The 28-year-old driver tried to run away but was quickly caught near Lamar High School.

He was taken to the hospital for treatment not related to the chase, police said.
