CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Troopers from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol are looking for a suspect Wednesday after a high-speed car chase turned into a foot chase.

Troopers said the man was in a stolen Mercedes. Authorities said the car was going over 100 mph on Interstate 77. When troopers tried to stop the driver, the suspect started a chase.

After a while, the man got off of I-77 and jumped out of the car and ran from the scene near Seigle Avenue.

Troopers said the suspect was a black man about about 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans.

If anyone  has information on this suspect they're asked to contact the highway patrol at (704) 547-0042.
