A Wednesday morning police chase out of Bellevue ended in an arrest at the Love's truck stop.

DPS Trooper Fulton told Newschannel 6 the chase started outside of Clay County just before 11 a.m. DPS was attempting to pull over 30-year-old Robert Engel for a traffic violation when he took off. The driver continued north on Hwy 287, going at least 100 mph. DPS, Clay County and Wichita Co. Sheriff's offices were involved.

Troopers set up spikes at Hammond Rd. Engel's vehicle took the Windthorst exit and came to a stop at Love's. Fulton said Engel was not armed but during the chase he threw meth out of the car.

He was charged with evading arrest in a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled substance less than 4 grams, and tampering with evidence.

He is being held at the Wichita Co. Jail.
