(KNZA)--A Hiawatha man is facing charges after leading authorities on a chase.

According to a release from Hiawatha Police Chief John Defore, the chase began late Friday afternoon after an officer attempted to stop a vehicle driven by 37-year-old Zachariah Brown after he was observed swerving and speeding.

Defore said Brown allegedly attempted to elude officers while driving extremely reckless.

The pursuit ended after Brown wrecked his vehicle in the 500 block of South 2nd Street.

He was booked into the Brown County Jail on charges including fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, reckless driving, driving while license suspended, canceled or revoked, no liability insurance and interference with law enforcement.

The case has been forwarded to Brown County Attorney Kevin Hill for the filing of formal charges.

Assisting were the Kansas Highway Patrol, Sac and Fox Tribal Police, Brown County Sheriff's Office and Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.
