CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

One man was arrested Wednesday morning after leading troopers on a vehicle chase in north Charlotte.

Troopers say the man arrested, later identified as Anthony Antoine Byers,  as also arrested by the same trooper in 2012.

It started around 8:10 a.m. when a trooper with the NC Highway Patrol tried to stop a blue Suzuki for wreckless driving on Interstate 85.

Byers refused to stop and got off the interstate on Tryon Street, heading south before he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a utility pole.

Byers jumped out of the car and ran before troopers took him into custody in front of the Golden Corral near University City Boulevard.
