NEWPORT-A high-speed chase, at times allegedly reaching up to 115 mph, ended in a wreck and arrest in Sevier County, on Sunday, July 14, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

CCSD Deputy Johnathan Ball stated in a report that he was traveling south on Hooper Highway when, around 3 a.m., he came upon a vehicle that had allegedly just been hit by black vehicle that had come off of Stonebrook Road without stopping at the stop sign.

Ball stated that he saw the taillights of the black vehicle, a 1993 Honda that had hit the other vehicle. He said he noted that the passenger side taillight was brighter than the driver-side taillight, which made it stand out in the dark.

Ball pursued the Honda on Hooper Highway to the Cocke County/Sevier County line, not seeing the vehicle turn around at the county line, according to Ball's report.
