KALAMAZOO COUNTY (WKZO) -- A Parole absconder has just added several felony charges to the list of counts against him after he led Kalamazoo County Deputies on a high speed chase early this morning across the southern half of the county.

They first spotted him leaving the Pavillion Estates Trailer park, and tried to pull him over, but he fled.

He led the deputies into Portage and then across Kalamazoo, hitting speeds of up to 100 MPH at times.

Portage Police were able to spike his tires near Sprinkle and Zylman, bringing the chase to a quick conclusion. The chase covered about 30-miles of local roadway.

He now sits in the Kalamazoo County Jail awaiting fleeing and eluding and possibly other charges.
