EL CAJON (CBS 8) - A man is in custody Tuesday morning after a wild high speed police chase through El Cajon. 

It happened just after 9 p.m. Monday when an officer tried to pull the man over for speeding.

According to authorities, the suspect took off, driving at speeds up to 100 miles per hour on Interstate 8 before exiting the freeway at Second Street.

The man bailed out of the car at East Madison and a K-9 cornered him in the backyard of a house. Authorities are investigating if the man was under the influence.
