BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Police have arrested two people and are on the lookout for two others after a high-speed chase Saturday night on Interstate 20 in Webster and Bossier parishes.

The pursuit started when an officer pulled over a vehicle about 11 p.m. on Industrial Drive in Minden.

The car turned around and sped off toward westbound I-20.

Minden police say the fleeing vehicle reached speeds of up to 119 mph.

The chase ended when police used spike strips to stop the speeding vehicle between the Industrial Drive and Airline Drive exits off I-20 in Bossier City.

Four people who were in the car got out and ran toward East Texas Street, with one person taken into custody at the scene, according to authorities.

Some of the others likely traveled either through or very close to Burney's Elm Trailer Park off U.S. Highway 80.

That's where a resident we'll call "Bud" said he knew something was up when an officer stood right outside his front window Saturday night.

"Cop cars everywhere. Policeman stood out here for about an hour. I guess making sure nobody come running or trying to get in my place."

Police soon made that second arrest just a block down Hwy. 80 near Sam's Tavern in east Bossier City.

"Ha! And I didn't hear a thing. That's pretty sad," resident Michael Bates said with a laugh. "I'm (a) pretty light sleeper. So I didn't hear anything. If they ran through here, I didn't know anything about it."

But he and his neighbors still are concerned because the other two who ran away still could be in the area.

"This is a quiet neighborhood. We don't have any problems around here. Everybody knows everybody. Nobody messes with nobody's stuff," Bates said.

"So to have something like that happen is weird."

Bossier Maximum-Security Facility booking records show 20-year-old Rashid Norman, of the 5300 block of States Oil Company Road in Shreveport, was booked at 3:15 p.m. Sunday on one count each of flight from an officer and having no driver's license. His bonds total $1,001.

The narrative says Norman was "arrested for leading several police agencies on a high-speed chase. Finally wrecked out in Bossier City."

It also notes that Norman has warrants for his arrest in Webster Parish.

In addition to the arrests, police said they also recovered a gun and suspected illegal drugs.

Authorities urge anyone with any information about the chase to call Minden police at (318) 371-4226.
