Police say the chase began in Roswell shortly before 2:30 a.m. That's where police tried to stop a driver of a reportedly stolen Toyota Tundra.

They lost contact with the vehicle and notified Georgia State Patrol officers, who saw the man speeding down Georgia State Route 400 at over 100 miles per hour just six minutes later.

Officials say the man exited onto Sydney Marcus Boulevard, where he T-boned a car and then kept going onto Buford Highway.

He then tried to get away on foot but found himself stuck on a tall fence behind the Hillside at Lenox condominiums on Lenox Road, Georgia State Patrol Sergeant First Class John Cronin said.

"He actually got hung up on the wrought iron spikes, and troopers had to assist him back down," Cronin said.

The suspect, identified by police as Kierris Alexander, 32, of Fairburn, is expected to face several charges related to the incident including DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.

Roswell Police also believe the man may have been involved in other car thefts in their area.
