Jimmy A. Coddington, 48, led officers on the pursuit and later on a foot chase. 

Coddington was arrested on charges of resisting arrest by fleeing, speeding (93 miles per hour in a 65 miles per hour zone), careless and imprudent driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and having no proof of insurance.
