Police: Salina driver arrested after police chase

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Salina police arrested a 21-year-old man who they say led police on a chase after they caught him drag racing.

Police tell the Salina Journal the man was arrested Wednesday and that he had a 15-year-old girl in the car during the attempted escape in a 2003 Acura. He faces charges including endangering a child, racing on highways and reckless driving.

Police say he original eluded police but that a witness later saw him on the highway. They say he abandoned the car and ran before he was caught.
