A high speed police chase has landed a Cherryfield man behind bars.
It all started around 9:45 last night when a state trooper tried to stop 27 year old Alonzo Harvey for speeding on route one in Harrington.
They say Harvey took off and led the trooper down several roads at a high rate of speed.
He also turned off his headlights at one point.
It finally ended when they say Harvey drove his Mitsubishi Eclipse down a dead end road where he ditched the car.
He fled into some woods, but a police dog managed to find him hiding behind a tree about three miles away.
Harvey was arrested and is now facing numerous charges including criminal speeding, eluding an officer and possession of marijuana.
