    A man was arrested early Sunday morning after a police chase through Kaufman and Dallas Counties.

    The Kaufman County Sheriff's Office said the chase started when one of its deputies tried to make a traffic stop just after midnight on Interstate 20 near Farm-to-Market Road 148.

    The sheriff said the driver drove off while the deputy had his arm inside the car window, and that at one point the man tried to back his vehicle into the deputy's cruiser.

    The chase started in Kaufman County and continued through Mesquite and into Dallas, the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office said speed topped 90 miles per hour.

    Officers from Crandall, Mesquite, Dallas County and the Texas Department of Public Safety joined the pursuit.

    The chase ended in the 3000 block of South Cockrell Hill in Dallas when stop strips were deployed.

    Edgar Mariam Lee Kinnard, 37, of Shreveport Louisiana was arrested and taken to the Kaufman County Law Enforcement Center where he awaits arraignment.

    Kinnard faces charges of assault of a public servant and evading arrest with a vehicle.
