A man wanted for questioning in an Independence homicide was arrested Monday after a high-speed police chase.
The man was arrested early Monday afternoon in the area of Interstate 435 and U.S. 40.
He was taken into custody after his vehicle was disabled with a tire deflation device and he attempted to flee on foot, according to police radio traffic.
The Star is not naming the man because he has not been charged.
