The man fled down U.S. Highway 151 at speeds of more than 90 mph, according to the sheriff's office, until hitting road spikes near State Highway 33.
During the incident, the sheriff's office said a dog got out of the man's car – causing traffic issues. That dog was caught and turned over to its owner.
Northbound U.S. 151 was closed south of State Highway 33 until the man was taken into custody without further incident for fleeing and operating while intoxicated.
