MHP Roadblock Leads to High-Speed Chase

Meridian, Miss. The Mississippi Highway Patrol set up several road blocks in Meridian this weekend and one of those road blocks apparently led to a high-speed chase.

The chase ended near Highway Village around 1 a.m. Sunday. MHP says it attempted to stop a vehicle, but the driver fled troopers and a chase ensued.

The driver eventually wrecked and is now in custody on drug and fleeing charges.
