CARIBOU — A Caribou man was arrested Friday night following a high-speed chase.
According to a press release from the Maine State Police, 33-year-old Colter Cross led police on a chase on State Route 11 reaching speeds of over 100 miles per hour.
Police say the pursuit went through several towns in Aroostook County.
Police say Cross hit a spike mat they set up, which made his front and rear passenger tires deflate.
According to police, Cross stopped his car in Caribou and tried to run into the woods.
The release says a state trooper tackled cross to the ground before he could escape.
Police say Cross had been released on bail for drug trafficking charges and was on probation.
Cross was arrested for Eluding an Officer, Passing a Police Roadblock, Operating After Licensed Revocation, Violating Conditions of Release, Driving to Endanger, Criminal Speeding and Refusing to Submit to Arrest/Detention.
According to police, the incident is under investigation, and drugs and drug paraphernalia were found on cross and in the car, so more charges are likely.
Ashland, Washburn and Caribou police assisted state police.
Cross remains in custody at the Aroostook County Jail.
