LA CROSSE, Wis. -

Authorities say a Sparta man told sheriff's deputies he was high on crack cocaine when he led them on a chase with speeds exceeding 100 mph.

A criminal complaint filed in La Crosse County says 30-year-old Seth Arttus fled when officers tried to stop him for a suspended registration in Onalaska Saturday. Prosecutors say Arttus sped through red lights and led police to the interstate where speeds reached 111 mph.

Deputies found Arttus' abandoned SUV on Highway 162. A Vernon County police dog helped track down the suspect.

The La Crosse Tribune says Arttus is charged with recklessly endangering safety, fleeing from police and bail jumping.
