Wichita police called off a chase early Saturday morning after the man they were pursuing began driving the wrong way on Second Street at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour.

Sgt. Bruce Watts said the chase began in the 600 block of North Topeka.

The driver of the silver Dodge Ram pickup truck later smashed into another vehicle at Ninth and Chautauqua and then sped off again, Watts said.

Police arrested the man in the 2900 block of East Mossman, where they said he broke into an ex-girlfriend’s house to hide, Watts said. Police have accused him of evading and eluding law enforcement, driving under the influence, hit and run, a bench warrant and other traffic charges.
