MAPLEWOOD, Minn. (KMSP) -

A drag racer was arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase from Maplewood, Minn. to St. Paul early Tuesday morning.

The chase began just before 1 a.m. after police saw the suspect allegedly drag racing along County Road B2 in Maplewood.

The driver attempted to flee to Interstate 694 with speeds topping 100 mph. Police first followed the suspect down Interstate 35E and along Interstate 94 through St. Paul before he drove into an east St. Paul neighborhood.

State troopers used a pit maneuver to stop the suspect's car near Wheelock Lane and Maryland Avenue. The suspect tried to run but was caught by police K9s and arrested.
