Sierra Vista police arrested a 20-year-old Sierra Vista man after leading officers on an 8-mile pursuit in an allegedly stolen car.

Police say Kristopher Riley was arrested at 1 a.m. Saturday after police tried to stop him near the Highway 90 Bypass and Coronado Drive.

Riley refused to pull over and drove up to 100 miles per hour before getting a flat tire and stopping in the 800 block of Arizona Street. Riley then ran off, before police caught him and took him into custody without further incident.

Riley was booked into Cochise County Jail and faces charges of theft of means of transportation, criminal damage, felony flight, reckless driving and driving on suspended licenses, as well as two outstanding warrants.
