High-speed chase in Borger ends in DWI arrest

Posted: Updated:

An Amarillo man is booked into the Hutchinson County jail after leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase through Borger.

Officials say a Hutchinson County deputy tried to pull over a BMW around midnight Friday night. The driver, 55-year-old Ruben Delarosa, refused to stop and then led officials on a chase through town topping out at over 100 miles per hour. Shortly before 12:30 a.m., Delarosa lost control of the vehicle, crashing into two nearby parked cars before coming to a stop.

Alcohol was a factor, and officials arrested him for Evading Arrest and DWI.
