KURTEN -- An Iola man leads DPS on a 10-mile car chase near Kurten last night after several drivers called police reporting a man driving erratically.

According to police reports obtained by Fox 28, J. Guadalupe Hernandez, was weaving in and out of oncoming traffic and nearly caused a head-on collision.

Five patrol cars joined in on the chase, reaching speeds of 50-miles an hour. Hernandez was finally stopped after 10 miles.

He was arrested for driving while intoxicated and evading arrest. This is his third DWI arrest. Hernandez reportedly blew a .214, almost three times the legal limit.
