A man is behind bars after he led police on a high speed chase while allegedly driving under the influence early Sunday morning.

An officer with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety saw the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed while driving down Georgia 400. She clocked the vehicle going as high as 155 miles per hour and attempted to pull the driver over.

A high speed chase began and after several miles, the officer was ready to call off the pursuit. That's when the officer saw the speeding vehicle come to an abrupt halt after heavy smoke came billowing from the brake pads.

The officer noticed the driver appeared impaired and smelled of alcohol. A sobriety test was administered and the man was taken to jail.

He's being charged with DUI, speeding, failing to maintain a lane and driving with an expired tag.

No injuries were sustained.
