An early morning high-speed chase ended in an arrest by the Newton Police Department.

Joshua J. White, 34, of Newton, was charged with driving while license barred and eluding, both aggravated misdemeanors. He was also charged with interference with official acts and other traffic offenses.

At 12:09 a.m. Friday, NPD attempted to stop a vehicle in the 1300 block of North Fourth Avenue West for a speed violation. According to a press release, the vehicle then fled eastbound and then northbound on West Eighth Street North. White ran stop signs and reached speeds of 70 mph before stopping in the 1400 block of West Eighth Street North. White then left the vehicle and attempted to flee on foot. Newton police caught him and took him into custody.

He remains at the Jasper County Jail on a $4,900 bond.
