High-speed chase
PORTALES, N.M. (AP) -

A Texas man says he doesn't regret a 100-mile chase that began in Texas and ended in eastern New Mexico after tire deflation devices were used to stop his speeding car.

Authorities said 24-year-old Christopher Sharp of Lubbock refused to stop early Sunday morning after being clocked by police in the Texas city of Canyon while at 120 mph.
    
In an interview with the Portales News-Tribune, Sharp said he took off because he didn't have a driver's license or ID on him and thought he could get away by crossing the state line.
    
Sharp was booked into the Roosevelt County Detention Center on Sunday on a charge of aggravated fleeing from police.
