Knoxville police officers and a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper arrested a man accused of leading authorities on a 100-mph car chase on Monday afternoon.

The man — identified by THP Sgt. Jeff Appleba as 42-year-old David J. Haynes Jr. — initially eluded capture after authorities decided the chase was too dangerous to continue.

Just before 6:30 p.m., police found and arrested Haynes inside the Summit Towers apartment complex on Locust Street near downtown Knoxville.

Appleba said the chase began in West Knoxville when he pulled over Haynes for not wearing a seat belt. Haynes, allegedly driving a Honda Civic, stopped the car on the shoulder of the Interstate 40 West on-ramp near West Town Way.
