An officer first spotted Jonathon Dixon traveling over 100 miles an hour southbound on Skyway through the Paradise downtown area, however, due to his speed, the officer was unable to catch up to him. 

A short time later a sergeant was able to stop Dixon and make the arrest after seeing him driving 60 miles in a 30 mile-per-hour zone.  Police say Dixon showed signs of intoxication and was arrested on suspicion of a DUI.
