CHICAGO— A man is in custody after leading Chicago police on a high-speed chase on the West Side Tuesday afternoon.

The chase ended in the 200 block of North Central Ave around 5:45 pm.

According to witnesses, at some point during the pursuit, police were chasing the driver who was behind the wheel of a newer black jeep Cherokee and traveling northbound.  A few short minutes later, witnesses say the same thing but the vehicle was heading in the opposite direction.
