SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — It's not yet known what sparked a pursuit on the State Route 101 freeway that ended with a driver being taken into custody in Scottsdale.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says one of its officers attempted to stop a vehicle Thursday morning on the freeway in Tempe, but the driver didn't stop.

The pursuit then went into Scottsdale where the driver was taken into custody on the Chaparral Road off-ramp by officers who had their guns drawn.

The pursued vehicle reportedly reached speeds of 90 mph or faster during the chase.
