SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Spokane police saw a familiar face when they arrested a reckless driver after a chase that ended Thursday night in a crash.

Police say the 47-year-old man has been arrested and booked into jail on more than 140 charges in an 18-year criminal career. Eight of those were attempting to elude.

Police say he tried to get away again when an officer tried to pull him over for reckless driving. He ran a stop sign and crashed into an SUV at an intersection, injuring two people.

The suspect was arrested for reckless driving and eluding police -- again.
