A man is behind bars after trying to evade Huntsville Police.

Around 12:30 Friday morning, officers spotted a driver speeding westbound on I-565 and attempted to pull him over.

The driver refused and instead continued at a high rate of speed.

Officers said the man pulled off at the Jordan Lane exit and made his way south down Patton Road.

He then pulled off near Gate 10 and turned into the Monarch Apartment Homes complex off of Talwell Drive.

Officers were able to apprehend the driver near the back of the complex and placed him into custody.

Investigators told WAAY 31 that the driver will likely be charged with reckless endangerment and attempting to elude. No one was injured in the pursuit.
