Maryville (WVLT) - A Maryville man is in custody after Maryville Police say he led them on a high speed chase.

It's video you'll only see on Volunteer TV.

Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp says it all started just before two on Monday morning when an officer pulled over 38-year-old Randall Wayne Cooper. When the officer realized Cooper had a warrant in Knox County, he asked Cooper to step out of the vehicle.
Chief Crisp says that's when cooper took off and led police on a high speed chase through Blount County with speeds reaching up to 100 miles an hour.

"They went through several streets in Maryville, went into the county, come back into Maryville. Several streets there that they went through a couple of subdivisions," Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp said.

Officers terminated the chase on Lamar Alexander Parkway, but Cooper was eventually caught in Loudon County on Tellico Parkway.
Crisp tells us Cooper faces felony reckless endangerment charges.
