ROCKLEDGE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A high-speed chase in Brevard County resulted in speeds of up to a hundred miles per hour and a couple of close calls.

When a Brevard County sheriff's helicopter caught up to the alleged thieves, the driver was flying down southbound Interstate 95 around 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon, using every inch of the asphalt to get away from deputies.

But it's when he exited Fiske and headed toward Rockledge that law enforcement became extremely concerned. Once on Murrell, the driver was blowing through one intersection after another.

The driver then drove into a residential area, looking for a good spot to bail out and run. The driver and three passengers scattered like roaches, but the driver couldn't run nearly as fast as his passengers. So he tried to steal a ride from an unsuspecting driver. Locked doors and quick reaction by the driver may have prevented a car jacking.

The sheriff's chopper was able to lead a Cocoa police officer to the scene, when the drive decided to surrender, spreading eagle on the pavement.

The suspects are facing charges of using stolen credit cards, hit and run, and fleeing and eluding.
