An Amelia man has been arrested following a high speed chase Wednesday morning.
31-year-old Jovian Clark was wanted on previous warrants for kidnapping and battery during a routine traffic stop by the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputies, that turned into a high speed chase.
During the chase, Clark lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a ditch at the corner of Saturn street and Jupiter Road. Clark was taken to Teche Regional Medical Center and once cleared was released to the authorities.
Clark has been booked on all previous warrants as well as reckless operation of a vehicle, aggravated flight, and criminal damage to property.
