Ex Police Officer Arrested After High Speed Chase

A former Tempe police officer was arrested Monday after being arrested earlier in the weekend. 30 year-old Garrett Peterson resigned his position as an officer on Friday and was involved in a high speed chase in Gilbert later that night. Our television partner KYMAT-V says on Monda, Yuma Sector Border Patrol Agents noticed a vehicle that was a prior "Attempt to Locate" and began to follow the vehicle. Eventually DPS officers attempted to stop the vehicle and the vehicle fled. Speeds reached approximately 90 miles per hour as the pursuit traveled westbound on I-8 around mile marker 40. After turning around several times, the driver went head on into a commercial truck. Police closed the freeway during the pursuit.
