JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On Thursday, MHP was involved in a chase from I-20 to I-55 with a suspect who claims he didn't stop because he was tired of being profiled. 

Just after 1:30 pm, and MHP trooper noticed a Chevrolet Impala tailgating him on I-20 near the Hwy 80 exit in Brandon. He also noticed the Impala was driving in a "reckless manner running other motorists off the interstate".

The trooper attempted to pull over the car, but according to MHP, the driver would not stop and began fleeing from the trooper.

Pearl police were also notified in an attempt to stop the car, but the Impala continued into Jackson via I-55 south and then to the Savannah Street exit. MHP says the car then turned on Lee Avenue and the driver lost control, striking a tree and a parked car.

The driver was the only person inside the car and was taken into custody by authorities.

The suspect was identified as 20-year-old Ricky Kyzar, of Hollandale. He told troopers he didn't want to stop because he was "tired of being profiled for nothing".

He was charged with DUI, reckless driving, disregard for traffic device, following too closely and other violations.
