SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Sparks police say a high-speed chase ended with the arrest of a 25-year-old man and the discovery of a 5-year-old child in the car.

Police say the chase began late Friday night after they spotted a vehicle traveling more than 70 mph in a 25 mph zone.

An officer tried to stop the car by turning on his emergency lights, but the car did not stop. The officer then turned on the siren and pursued the vehicle until it came to a stop.

Police say Blake Maldonado of Sparks was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, reckless driving and child neglect.

Also in the vehicle with the 5-year-old boy was a Sparks man.

The relationship of the boy and the two men was not immediately disclosed.
