McALISTERVILLE, PA (WHTM) -

Police said they arrested a Juniata County man after he led state troopers on a high-speed chase -- all the way to his home.

Michael Johnston, 42, had fled from Harrisburg city police and was traveling on Route 322 near Newport when troopers attempted to stop him Tuesday evening, police said.

Johnston refused to pull over and was pursued to the Thompsontown exit and ultimately to his home in McAlisterville, where he was taken into custody after a short foot chase, police said.

He was charged with a felony count of fleeing and eluding and numerous summary traffic offenses.
