Authorities say a man arrested after a high-speed chase in Pinal County is a native of Mexico who has been deported 20 times.

County Sheriff's officials say 26-year-old Genaro Cisneros-Delgado is being held on a $50,000 bond on suspicion of felony flight and endangerment.

They say Cisneros-Delgado took a sheriff's deputy on a 30-mile chase on Interstate 10 last Friday night and speeds reached more than 100 mph

Authorities say Cisneros-Delgado crashed through a locked gate outside a Sun Lakes retirement community before stopping the vehicle and fleeing with three passengers.

Cisneros-Delgado was jailed and the other three have been turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol for processing.
