Man behind bars following multi-county high speed chase
(KETK) Smith County — A Longview man is behind bars after leading DPS troopers on a multi-county, high speed, motorcycle chase.
Smith County Troopers say the chase began early Sunday morning in Kaufman County.
Troopers tried to pull over Justin Rusk, 27, around 3:00 a.m. Rusk refused and began speeding away, reaching speeds close to 100 mph.
Rusk drove through Van Zandt and Smith County before surrendering to authorities at the intersection of Interstate 20 and Highway 69, just before 4:30.
Rusk was then taken back to Kaufman County jail.
