WEBSTER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

What started as a traffic stop for a window tint violation Tuesday in Webster Parish ended with a high speed chase, wreck and arrest.

Louisiana State Police Sgt. James Anderson says a trooper had pulled 31-year-old Jerome Pickens over on suspicion of the window tinting violation and was questioning him, when Pickens hopped back in his car and took off.

The pursuit headed eastbound on Highway 80, turning east on to LA 164, reaching speeds of up to 120 mph.

It ended when Pickens wrecked just east of the Bayou Dorcheat Bridge. That's where Pickens was taken into custody and checked over by EMTs before he was ultimately booked into the Bossier Maximum Security Facility on a charges of aggravated flight from an officer, resisting an officer, wreckless operation, driving under
suspension, speeding 120 in a 55 and a window tint violation.

Sgt. Anderson says Pickens also initially gave the trooper a false ID.
