Killeen police arrested a 30-year-old man they said led them on a high-speed chase at speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Police charged Joshua Ananias Finley with evading arrest in a motor vehicle. Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Finley on Thursday, setting his bail at $20,000.

Police arrested Finley about 4:15 a.m. Wednesday after he led them from Killeen to the area of U.S. Highway 190 and Indian Trail in Harker Heights.

According to an arrest affidavit, police were responding to a welfare check when they saw a vehicle associated with the call.

Police attempted to stop the vehicle, but instead a man later identified as Finley drove off at a high rate of speed. The affidavit stated that Finley refused to stop and at times drove faster than 100 mph. Eventually, he brought the car to a stop and was arrested.
