The Holland Sentinel reported the chase began about 7 a.m. Tuesday. The 25-year-old Holland man led police through Holland and neighboring parts of Allegan County.

The suspect then called 911 and reached Allegan County dispatcher Tammy Gane. Dispatch official Megan Kuhn said the driver told Gane to have police stop following him.

Gane asked him how fast he was driving and urged him to slow down, while telling him officers needed to speak with him. Kuhn said the man finally stopped and followed Gane’s instructions to put his hands on the wheel.

The suspect was being held but wasn’t yet charged Tuesday.
