John D. Foutch of Rippey led the Boone and Dallas Sheriff Department on a high speed chase early Saturday morning.

At 2:21 a.m. Deputy Josh Quinn attempted to stop the vehicle at 260th and G. Ave. for a traffic violation but Foutch did not stop.

Boone Sheriff Rick Lampe said Foutch was eventually forced off the road with the pursuit intervention technique after traveling westbound in the east bound lane just east of Perry.

The chase lasted 20-25 minutes with speeds reaching 90 mph. Foutch was arrested for numerous traffic offenses and taken to the Boone County Jail.
