PHOENIX — An 18-year-old man from Honduras was charged with high-speed flight from an Arizona immigration checkpoint last week, authorities said.

Oblin Jeremias Redondo-Lopez was arrested Tuesday after fleeing checkpoints on West Arivaca Road near Amado with agents in pursuit, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona said in a press release.

Authorities said Redondo-Lopez’s gold 2002 Buick Rendezvous sped past bumps and signage, until it continued onto the Interstate 10 traveling at around 110 miles per hour in a 75 mile per hour zone.

He was stopped by the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department on Interstate 10 near Picacho Peak.

Redondo-Lopez faces up to five years in prison, a fine up no more than $250,000, or both, if convicted.

The U.S. Border Patrol conducted the investigation into the case.
