MIAMI -

Police charged two men in connection with a tri-county police chase that ended in Miami Gardens.

Police arrested Willie Williams and Marquell Shellman, both of Miami, on Tuesday.

Williams, 21, is charged with grand theft, burglary, fleeing and eluding, and resisting an officer without violence. Shellman, 25, is charged with grand theft, burglary, fleeing and eluding, resisting an officer without violence, and battery on a law enforcement officer.

A Collier County Sheriff's Office deputy stopped the grey sport utility vehicle at mile marker 98 on Interstate 75 on Tuesday afternoon for a window tint violation, police say.

While the deputy was questioning the driver outside the vehicle, another man got into the driver's seat and drove away.

The deputy followed the SUV to the Collier County line and then radioed Miami-Dade police to be on the lookout.

Police found the SUV going southbound on U.S. 27, but when officers tried stopping it, the driver sped up and got on Florida's Turnpike.

The vehicle reached speeds up to 110 mph during the chase.

The SUV exited at Red Road before stopping near Northeast 196th Terrace and 29th Avenue. Sky 10 showed three men get out and begin running through a neighborhood. The trio hopped fences as they ran through yards.

Two men -- Williams and Antron -- were apprehended. A third remains on the loose.
