PHOENIX — A man is in custody after leading multiple agencies on a wild 60-mile pursuit across the Valley Monday night.

The ABC15 chopper tracked the man's SUV as it was driving south of the Valley before going up Interstate 10 into Phoenix.

The SUV was driving the wrong way at times with sparks flying before it was stopped. The driver and two other people bailed from the vehicle near 24th Street and Broadway Road.

According to police documents, the driver was identified as Orlando Felix-Lopez. He was booked into jail on charges of reckless driving and fleeing from law enforcement.
