A man led Nye County Sheriff’s deputies on a high-speed pursuit just before 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
The chase began in the area of North Barney and Pittman streets when deputies initiated a traffic stop on a black subcompact car bearing no registration.
The unidentified man reached speeds of more than 100 miles per hour during five-plus minute pursuit, which ended at the corner of North Majestic View Street and Palm Drive, when deputies conducted a felony stop on the vehicle.
Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue crews were also summoned after a small brush fire broke out at the scene.
No injuries were reported.
The driver was apprehended and transported to the Nye County Detention Center on yet-to-be-disclosed charges.
