Armed Suspect Arrested Without Incident Following Multi-County Pursuit

(Marquette County) A multi-county police chase with an armed and potentially suicidal suspect ended without incident late yesterday (Thursday) morning. The pursuit apparently started in Dane County and wound through Columbia and Green Lake counties before eventually coming to an end in Marquette County just before the noon hour. Chief Deputy Matthew Vande Kolk says the suspect vehicle entered Green Lake County around 11am but his deputies did not initiate a pursuit and instead cleared traffic at major intersections. Marquette County deputies stopped the vehicle on County E and the 30-year-old driver was arrested. A firearm was located in the vehicle. Authorities anticipate that felony charges will be filed in multiple counties.
