FORT WORTH, Texas — Fort Worth police arrested a man after a lengthy chase, which included three spike strips, and an hour of negotiations early Wednesday morning.

The suspect’s name and charges have not been released by police officials yet.

He surrendered to police around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Fort Worth police began chasing the suspect before midnight and the chase went for more than two hours, reaching speeds of 100 mph, according to WFAA crews who witnessed it in the U.S. 287 area of southeast Fort Worth.

The chase went into Arlington and then Grand Prairie and then back to Fort Worth, ultimately coming to a stop in the 4400 block of South Riverside Drive and Rolling Hills Road.

The suspect’s car, which appeared to be a four-door Dodge Charger, had been spiked three times: At Cooks Lane and Interstate 30 in Arlington, and Loop 820 and I-30 and near Rosedale Street in Fort Worth. 

At one point, WFAA captured video of the suspect still in pursuit with sparks flying from his vehicle’s wheels. His tires were badly damaged when the chase came to a stop.

Police then negotiated with him to leave his car for about an hour. He eventually stepped out of the vehicle with his hands up and was taken into custody.

It was unclear why police began chasing the man. His sister went to the scene where he was arrested and told WFAA that he recently was released from prison for a similar incident.

Police have not released more information about the chase.
