Authorities said a poker player grabbed cash from a casino in the region and fled, leading police on a chase that reached speeds of nearly 100 mph.

The man was arrested last night in Berrien County after the alleged theft at FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek.

Tribal police from the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi pursued him onto eastbound Interstate 94.

Authorities said the man used an emergency turnaround to get into the westbound lanes, and officers lost sight of him.

Officers in Kalamazoo and Van Buren counties also tried to stop the car, before it was stopped by Michigan State Police in Berrien County.

No injuries were reported.

The Nottawaseppi Huron Band operates the casino.
