A man is behind bars after a high speed chase that started in McAllen and ended in the city of Pharr.
McAllen police say someone reported a red truck driving recklessly and police spotted that truck at Jackson and Ridge road. The officer attempted to pull over the truck, but the driver hit the gas pedal and started a high speed chase. The chase ended in a Pharr neighborhood off of Erica street near Guadalupe Gonzalez home. He says the driver abandoned the truck behind a home and jumped over a fence to get away. Police did find him hidden under a mobile home.
