A man was arrested after leading police on a high speed chase in north Houston this morning.

The chase started on Ella and lasted for 30 minutes. It ended on Interstate 45, between West Gulf Bank and West Mount Houston, when he ran over a set of spikes.

Police say they found drugs and cash in his Lexus.

"We do have drugs in the vehicle. The suspect was throwing out drugs, we believe, on the freeway during the pursuit," said Sgt. David Hillborn with the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

After being stopped, the suspect tried running away but was quickly apprehended and hauled to jail.
