MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

One person is in custody after a high-speed chase led Southaven police officers and DeSoto County deputies out of Mississippi and into Memphis.

The suspect eventually crashed in the 4700 block of Getwell Road, where DeSoto County deputies arrested them.

According to Southaven police, DeSoto County deputies saw a drug transaction occur at a gas station near Tchulahoma Road and Goodman Road. The drug deal turned into a robbery, and deputies arrested one suspect.

The other suspect drove off and attempted to ram deputies with the car.

Southaven police assisted DeSoto County deputies and tried to stop the car by flattening its tires near the intersection of Getwell Road and Holmes Road.  

The suspect tried to run over officers again.

Deputies were eventually able to arrest the suspect in Memphis.

The suspect will likely face charges including evading arrest and assaulting police officers, but investigators have not released the full list of charges.
