A Gypsum man was taken into custody early Saturday after a high speed pursuit that clocked in at over 100 mph.
According to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan, 27-year-old Alexander Weller was booked into jail after fleeing from a deputy on patrol Saturday. Sheriff Soldan says just after midnight a deputy tried to make a traffic stop in Gypsum after Weller drove by in a 2017 Ford one-ton truck without headlights on.
Weller did not pull over and a chase ensued southbound on Gypsum Valley Road, ending near Hobbs Creek Road when he stopped his truck.
Weller is now facing charges that could include: no ignition interlocking device for a past DUI, flee and elude, open container and interference with law enforcement after refusing to comply with a warrant to determine his blood alcohol level.
