Arizona authorities catch suspects after chase

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. -- Two men are in custody following a high-speed chase in Pinal County.

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Gaffney says it started Sunday after officers got a call about people loading bundles of marijuana into a vehicle near Interstate 8.

The vehicle sped away after being spotted by a deputy. The pursuit hit speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The car eventually stopped. Gaffney says the driver, 25-year-old Ruben Soto-Gonzalez, ran through a nearby dairy farm and was tripped by a farm worker, causing him to fall face down in manure and to be stepped on by a startled cow.

The suspect hit the worker before being taken into custody.

The passenger, 40-year-old Daniel Aguilar-Alvarez, was found hiding under a bush.

Inside the vehicle, deputies found 160 pounds of marijuana worth $120,000.
