LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrested a man after a high speed chase.

According to OHP, the chase started Thursday afternoon in Sterling, where the suspect fled from local police at high speeds.

They said Sterling police lost sight of the man, but that the suspect later drove past the Troop G Captain on Highway 7, going 135 miles per hour.
