    A man and two women suspected of attempting to assault a sheriff's deputy in La Puente, then leading authorities on a high-speed chase that ended in Duarte, were in custody Saturday morning.

    A Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy tried to make contact with the man outside a home in La Puente at about 11 p.m. Friday when the man jumped into a car and backed into the deputy's vehicle, officials said.

    As the suspect drove away, he crashed into a home but kept going, according to Deputy Marvin Crowder of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.

    Deputies chased the man northbound on the 605 Freeway to the westbound 210 Freeway, reaching speeds of around 100 mph at times before the driver exited on Huntington Drive in Monrovia and proceeded eastbound before crashing into a median at Duarte Road and Highland Avenue in Duarte.

    After a short standoff, the man and two women in the vehicle surrendered to deputies and were taken into custody.

    The man was identified as Terence Warner, 37, of Moreno Valley, according to a lieutenant at the sheriff's Industry station, who would not release the names of the two women taken into custody.

    Warner was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer, he said.

    "He had a gun and drugs in the car," the sheriff's lieutenant said.

    No deputies were injured.
