Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man is in custody Friday night after leading police on a high speed chase from Tierrasanta to Shelltown.

Officers noticed the man driving about 90 miles an hour on the northbound 15 at Clairemont Mesa Boulevard just after 7:30 p.m. Officers deployed at least two spike strips, but the driver was able to avoid them.

He finally got off the freeway at Main Street. A police helicopter followed him until he hit another car, got out of his vehicle and tried to run.

Officers took him into custody a short time later.
