A Kewanee, Ill., man pled guilty Monday, July 8, 2013 to two felony charges, stemming from an incident that happened in May of 2013.

Henry County officials charged 25-year-old Travis Ladson with several offenses after leading police on a high-speed chase and running into one of the squad cars.

According to reports, Ladson was speeding on Highway 78. A trooper tried to stop him after he passed in a no passing zone, running cars off the road and driving erratically.

The trooper caught up to him in Annawan, Ill., signaling him to pull over, but Ladson sped up instead, reaching speeds up to 110 miles per hour.

Ladson received three years in prison for the charge of aggravated fleeing and five years for criminal damage to government property. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Other charges against Ladson were dropped.
