YPSILANTI, MI – A man arrested Thursday night for driving recklessly and leading police in a chase through Ypsilanti said he was high on marijuana and feeling pretty good up until the arrest, police say.

At 7:16 p.m. Thursday, May 21, police attempted to pull over a vehicle in the 200 block of N. River Street near Depot Town that was seen driving recklessness north bound from Michigan Avenue, according to the Ypsilanti Police Department.

The vehicle failed to stop and instead led police in a brief pursuit that ended in the man’s arrest without further incident, police said.

When questioned, the man admitted to fleeing police because he was feeling good from smoking marijuana and had never been in a chase before, police said.

He was taken to a local hospital for a blood sample and later the Washtenaw County Jail for booking.
