The Kansas Highway Patrol says troopers were led on a 65-mile chase on the interstate before the driver was arrested.
The patrol says the chase began early Thursday after troopers tried to stop a van that was speeding on westbound Interstate 70 near Solomon in Dickinson County.
The pursuit continued into Russell County, where troopers were able to stop the van about five miles west of the Wilson exit.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the van was believed to be stolen. The driver was arrested after being subdued with a stun gun.
No injuries were reported.
