A Nampa man was arrested Saturday night after a vehicle chase and foot chase that led officers from Meridian to Garden City, according to Idaho State Police.

At 9:15 p.m., an ISP trooper attempted to stop Tyler Tomlinson,41, of Nampa, driving a silver Mitsubishi Galant on eastbound Interstate 84 near milepost 41.

But Tomlinson reportedly fled. At times speeds reached 90 mph, and at one point Tomlinson attempted to merge onto Interstate 184 in the wrong direction, according to ISP.

Ultimately Tomlinson’s vehicle was pinned against a cement barrier. Tomlinson attempted to flee on foot, but was taken into custody near the Riverside Hotel in Garden City, according to ISP.

Tomlinson was charged with felony eluding, felony possession of drugs, possession of paraphernalia and several warrants.
