WHIO: Fugitive leads cops on 2-state, high-speed pursuit

A man who was on a work release program from jail in Indiana led police on a high speed pursuit yesterday.

According to WHIO, Michael Penka, 34, was stopped by a Union City Police Officer and then sped off, leading officers on a pursuit that lasted longer than 25 miles and reach speeds exceeding 100 mph.

Apparently, this isn't the first time he has ran, as the article continues:
Police checked Penka’s background and discovered he has several felony convictions including fleeing from police in 2002 and 2011. 
The background check also revealed that Penka was on work release in Randolph County, Ind., and should have been in jail at the time of Tuesday’s incident, McHenry said.
Penka eventually led officers to a house in Hollansburg, where he ran inside before eventually giving himself up.

He was then taken into custody and booked in the Darke County Jail.
