SALEM, Ore. – State police arrested a 35-year-old man who they said led troopers on a chase through Salem after driving 106 mph on Interstate 5 early Tuesday morning.

A trooper spotted Anthony Segura of Salem driving a Chrysler 300 at 106 mph around 1:20 a.m., according to police. Segura drove into Southeast Salem as the trooper tried to pull him over.

Police said Segura sped up and tried to get away, but he stopped his car at the intersection of Kuebler Boulevard and Commercial Street.

When troopers ordered Segura to get out of the car, they said he yelled “an expletive comment” and refused. One trooper shocked Segura with a Taser and police took him into custody.

Police said they found a loaded semi-automatic handgun in the center console between the car’s front seats. They also found hydrocodone and oxycodone pills when they searched Segura.

Troopers took Segura to the Marion County Jail on DUII and felony attempt to elude charges. He also faces drug and gun charges.
