EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - It was caught on tape! A high speed chase went through East Texas and it far surpassed 100 miles an hour.

The chase was captured by dash cam video and released by the Athens police department. Authorities told us Robert DeHaven was riding a motorcycle and Eustace police were chasing him. The pursuit went into Athens, around 6:45 Tuesday morning. That's when Athens police got involved.

At one point, DeHaven even slowed down as if he was going to pull over, but then took off again. Police eventually lost sight of him, but a tip later led to his arrest.

DeHaven's bonds total more than $5,000 for outstanding warrants. He's also facing evading arrest charges.
