TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A man was arrested after leading authorities on a high-speed chase that started in Coffey County and came to an end late Monday morning in south Topeka.

27-year-old Anthony Dimitt of Minneola led officers north on US-75 highway to Topeka at speeds between 100 and 110 mph.

The chase went through portions of Coffey and Osage counties before spikes placed on the bridge over SE 49th St. caused the speeding truck to fall apart.

Officials say one of the truck’s tires rolled off and headed down the Burlingame Exit while the truck went down 41st.

The chase ended shortly after and Dimitt was taken into custody.

The truck, which officials say was stolen out of Wichita, was placed on a wrecker and removed from the area.
