Taylor Austin Templeton, 24, was arrested about 3 p.m. Saturday after leading Lebanon police officers on a pursuit that reached 100 miles per hour.

According to information released Monday, an officer was on patrol near the intersection of F Street and South Seventh Street when he saw a Honda Civic which appeared to match the description of a reported stolen vehicle.

When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver reportedly sped away. The pursuit ended when the Honda pulled off the roadway into a field near the intersection of Sand Ridge Road and Rock Hill Drive.

Templeton and a male passenger were detained without further incident.
