— BEDFORD, Pa. — A 25-year-old Claysburg man was jailed Sunday after Pennsylvania State Police pursued him at high speeds on Interstate 99 in East St. Clair Township.

Jesse Ritchey Zerby was charged with felony fleeing and eluding and held in the Bedford County Jail on $2,000 bond, police said.

Police attempted to stop Zerby’s 1996 Toyota Camry at 11:43 a.m. for an alleged equipment violation and ended up chasing him for 11 miles with speeds in excess of 100 mph. Zerby eventually got out of the car and ran before he was taken into custody.
