New Orleans police are looking for a man who they say led them on a high-speed chase late Wednesday night.

They say they were trying to pullover a man identified as Rory Dimes as part of a kidnapping investigation.  They say he drove away in a rented, silver Toyota Avalon with New York plates.

At at least one point, officers say the chase reached 140 mph.  One officer wrecked his car and, at last word, was hospitalized in good condition.

Dimes is considered armed and dangerous.  If you see him, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
