A man has been taken into custody after leading deputies on a multi-county pursuit on Interstate 35 early Tuesday morning. 

McLennan County Chief Deputy David Kilcrease said Bell County deputies saw a man driving recklessly without headlights driving near mile marker 281. 

Around 4:45 a.m., the deputies requested assistance from McLennan County deputies, who used spike strips to bring the car to a stop near mile marker 322. 

Deputies took the driver, Matthew Almanza, into custody and brought him back to Bell County where he was charged with evading arrest.
