LAWRENCE TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A Kalamazoo man has been arrested after leading deputies on a chase early Sunday morning.

The driver was found speeding on I-94, near exit 52, around 2:20 a.m. by Van Buren County deputies.

As the deputy attempted to pull the suspect over, they sped up, leading to a more than 100 mph chase.

When the suspect tried to use the mile 66 exit in Mattawan, they hit a curb and their vehicle "became disabled."

Deputies arrested the driver for fleeing and driving drunk, while the passenger was arrested for an unrelated warrant.
