A Midland man is now behind bars after leading deputies on a late night chase around town.

Authorities with the Midland County Sheriff's Office say on Friday night they caught up with and arrested 35-year-old Kevin Rance Jackson.

Deputies say it was a little after midnight when they pulled over Jackson around I-20 and Loop 250.

But when the deputy approached the pickup, Jackson sped off, leading authorities on a chase in and out of city streets and alleys.

After more than 20 minutes, deputies along with officers from the Texas Highway Patrol and Midland Police trapped and caught him and sent him to jail.

Jackson is charged with evading arrest and driving while intoxicated.

No one was hurt during the chase.
