WALL TOWNSHIP - Police say a Pennsylvania man led police on a high speed chase near the New Jersey shore, driving more than 10 miles on the wrong side of the Garden State Parkway.

Police say troopers saw William Errico of Penndel, Pennsylvania, driving a pickup northbound in the southbound lanes early Wednesday.

State Police say no one was injured in the 40-minute chase through Ocean and Monmouth counties. The pickup did not crash. Errico was captured in Wall.

The 36-year-old was arrested on charges of eluding police. Errico is also charged with intoxicated driving, possessing marijuana and illegally possessing both a shotgun and a revolver.

He's held on $200,000 bail and it's not known if he has a lawyer.

Errico was convicted of driving under the influence in 2009 and 2011.
