A routine traffic stop turned into a high speed chase through Killeen and Harker Heights Wednesday night.

Police tried to stop the driver of a Jaguar at Old FM 400 and Elms Road around 11:15 PM.

The driver sped away and led police to Harker Heights, where he jumped out of his car in the 1600 block of Beaver Trail.

A short time later, the man was found hiding in a drainage ditch and arrested.
