Authorities say a Baltimore City police sergeant was arrested following a high-speed chase.

Police say a state trooper pulled over Sgt. Francisco Hopkins around 3 a.m. New Year’s Day in Baltimore County during a traffic stop. He was off duty at the time.

According to a police report, Hopkins indicated he was a police officer, became angry and sped off.

Maryland State Police spokeswoman Elena Russo said Hopkins was driving up to 149 mph.

Hopkins was eventually pulled over and taken into custody. He was issued 10 citations, including one for trying to elude police.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis says he’s disappointed in the reported actions of the officer.

Hopkins was released on bond. He’s suspended with pay. It isn’t clear if he has an attorney.
