A Lake Charles man is behind bars tonight after leading state troopers on a high speed chase down Interstate 210.

Troopers say they saw Blake Aaron Mouton Smith, 26, pass other vehicles on the shoulder of U. S. 171.   When troopers tried to pull Smith over, he allegedly sped away, exiting onto I-210 before taking the chase onto several surface streets and back onto the interstate.  Troopers say they deployed spike strips on the interstate to stop Smith.  After Smith's car became immobile, he allegedly fled on foot before eventually getting caught.

Smith is facing second-offense DWI, drug possession, aggravated flight, and driving under suspension charges, among others.  He was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center.
