PLATTE COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

An 18-year-old man is locked up after leading police on a wild, high-speed chase across Platte County.

It started Monday afternoon when police tried to pull over Donald Eichelberger for speeding. But, instead of stopping, he sped off.

Eichelberger led police through a school zone, strip mall and two lawns. At one point, he reached speeds over 75 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone.

He eventually stopped and surrendered. The reason he gave for running was that he didn't want to get another ticket.

He faces a Class E felony which is punishable by up to four years in prison.
