An Arlington, Virginia, man is facing multiple charges after leading police on a high-speed chase through Fairfax County early Saturday morning.

Virginia State Police said the man, identified as Noe Adalberto Guerrero Molina, 34, took off after getting pulled over by a state trooper for speeding — 90 mph — while traveling west on Interstate 66 near state Route 123 shortly before 1 a.m.

The ensuing high-speed chase started westbound on I-66, continued into Manassas and then eastbound on I-66, police said.

During the course of the pursuit, police allege that Guerrero Molina used his Ford Expedition to repeatedly ram the patrol cars of three state troopers and a Fairfax County police officer.

The chase ended on I-495 after police maneuvered the SUV to a stop approximately a half mile from the exit for I-95, according to a statement.

Police arrested Guerrero Molina for DUI, his second offense within 10 years.

He was also charged with one felony account of eluding police, six counts of attempted malicious wounding of a police officer, two counts of hit-and-run; obstruction of justice; and failure to obey a red light.

He is being held without bond at the Fairfax County jail.

No police officers were injured and no civilian vehicles were struck during the pursuit, police said.
