A Dumas man led Arkansas State Police on a high speed chase Friday afternoon before losing control of the vehicle he was driving which slid into a ditch.

David Horn Jr., 32, was taken into custody after he got out of the car and tried to flee on foot but fell down several times in a yard on the west side of Pine Bluff.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Lisa McGriff said Arkansas State Trooper James Harrell was able to arrest Horn in the yard.

Reading from an affidavit by Harrell, McGriff said Harrell was traveling East on U.S. 65-B near Myrtle Street when he saw a Dodge Challenger that seemed to be going faster than the posted speed limit of 45 miles-per-hour.

Harrell reported that Horn’s speed reached 135 miles-per-hour.

Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 bond for Horn after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with felony fleeing. Horn was told to come back to court April 26.
