A high-speed chase that wound through Biloxi, D’Iberville and into Jackson County came to an end on Interstate 10 Wednesday afternoon.
Officials with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department tell us they were able to stop a silver Chevrolet Corvette that was reported stolen from a Mobile, AL, car dealership and they arrested one male suspect.  
Biloxi Police Chief John Miller said the chase started with an attempted traffic stop on I-10. He said the driver, identified as Matthew Scott Piele, 44, exited onto Cedar Lake Road, led officers on a chase down Popp’s Ferry Road onto Pass Road and eventually back onto the interstate via I-110.

Miller said his department called off the chase after it turned onto the interstate and speeds reached over 120 mph. 

Biloxi police tell us Piele hit several vehicles during the chase. The Corvette also sustained two flat tires from spike strip devices.
Piele is charged with felony eluding, felony possession of stolen property and other charges are pending. He is being held at the Harrison County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
