A high-speed pursuit through the metro ended in an arrest early Sunday morning.

It started around 1:48 a.m. Sunday on Northwest Expressway near N. MacArthur Blvd., according to Warr Acres police.

Police say officers attempted to pull over an orange motorcycle, driven by 27-year-old Michael Stange, for driving 55 mph in a 40 mph area.

Stange took off and led Warr Acres police on a 25-minute pursuit that crossed into Oklahoma County and reached speeds exceeding 115 mph, according to police.

Police say alcohol and drugs were not a contributing factor, and it is unclear why Stange avoided the traffic stop.

Officials say Stange now faces several charges including reckless driving and eluding police.
