WILLIAMSTOWN, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Highway Patrol says a man was arrested after leading officers on a chase that spanned nearly all of Jefferson County.

The chase began when a patrol trooper tried to stop the pickup outside of Topeka because its tag numbers and tail lights were covered.

After the driver sped away, officers pursued him along U.S. 24 through Grantville, Perry and Williamstown at speeds that sometimes reached 110 mph. The pickup also went into fields and gravel roads during the chase.

Patrol spokesman Don Hughes says the pursuit ended when the pickup caught fire as the man drove through a field southeast of Williamstown. The man got out of the vehicle and surrendered peacefully.

The man was treated at the scene before being taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
