Meridian police were involved in a high-speed chase on the western part of the city Monday afternoon.

It was just before 5:00 p.m. when a white car sped through 5th Street and crossed over Airport Blvd.

Interim Chief Charles Coleman says Joqundre A. Herlong was arrested and charged with felony fleeing.

While numerous officers were out with the suspect vehicle on Arthur street, a fight broke out between two people. Coleman says a man named Sanmarcos Houston ran up to Herlong after the chase and started to fight.

Authorities say Houston was tasered by police during the fight and has been charged with public fighting.

Coleman says the fight reportedly stems from a shooting that took place Sunday evening.

A portion of the chase was captured on surveillance video. In the video, a white car can be seen running a red light at high speeds before crossing over Airport Blvd.
