Man arrested after Montrose high speed chase

MONTROSE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A high speed chase in Montrose Monday night ended with a man in custody, and multiple agencies were called in to help.

The suspect is 59-year old Guy Mckinney from Nevada.

After 6 pm Monday October 14th, a sheriff's deputy responded to a trespassing call near the Cimmaron near Montrose.

When a deputy pulled over the driver of the white dodge near old 74 Road and Highway 50, the driver got out of his car, but then got back in it, and took off.

The chase escalated, and the driver got up to 106 miles per hour at one point, as he headed west toward Montrose city limits.

Montrose police officers were called in to help along with Colorado State Patrol, who were able to set up spike strips.

"He ended up stopping and then turning around, and coming back towards the deputies. At that point they were able to pinch him in, and box him in. We tried to negotiate with him for about 10 minutes, trying to get him to come out of the truck," said Montrose County Sheriff, Gene Lillard.

The spike strips were successful, but that didn’t stop Mckinney from driving through town.

Law enforcement eventually caught him near an area called Flat Top.

The truck he was driving was stolen, and it was originally from California.

Mckinney is in custody at the Montrose county jail.
