WHITE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A man is under arrest following a high speed police chase through three counties. Three people, including a child, were inside the car at the time. 

Monday night, White County deputies tried to stop a car going southbound on Springboro Road for a traffic violation. That is in the far southeastern part of the county.

White County Sheriff Bill Brooks said a man did not stop for officers and sped off. The car then entered Carroll County on State Road 18, drove on U.S. 421 to Delphi, and then got onto Old State Road 25. 

At one point, the chase got up to more than 90 miles per hour. 

The chase then continued for several miles southbound. It ended near the Family Express on Old State Road 25. Sheriff Brooks said it appeared a woman inside the car tried to disable it. A man, woman and child were all inside. 

When the car stopped, Brooks said the man ran away. He was found near a home by Carroll County K9 "Micky."

Keith Wiott, 37 and homeless, is currently in the White County Jail. Previous court records list his last known address on Union Street in Lafayette.
