YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - A Nebraska man is in custody in Yankton following a high-speed chase that started after a casino robbery.

Police in Yankton say the 23-year-old man was arrested around 11 p.m. Saturday.

Police say officers responded to report of an armed robbery at a gas station around 10:15 p.m. Saturday. The South Dakota Highway Patrol minutes later located a vehicle matching the description of the man's getaway car and a high-speed chase then ensued east of Yankton along Highway 50.

Police say speeds reached more than 100 mph before the suspect lost control and the vehicle rolled. The man attempted to flee the scene on foot, but a trooper apprehended him.

The man was arrested on initial charges of robbery, eluding, reckless driving, improper left turn and lane driving.
