Milwaukee Teen Arrested For Police Chase On Interstate 41

(Fond du Lac County) A Milwaukee teen was arrested after leading authorities on a high-speed chase in Fond du Lac County early Thursday morning. The pursuit started just after 2am when authorities clocked an SUV traveling around 100-miles-per-hour on Interstate 41, near County B, west of Eden. The suspect reportedly refused to stop and accelerated to speeds around 120-miles-per-hour, weaving in and out of traffic across both lanes. Deputies deployed a stop stick device, but the SUV exited at County Highway N. The driver then lost control and crashed. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s deputies, with the assistance from the Wisconsin State Patrol, were able to take the driver and lone occupant of the vehicle into custody without further incident. The total pursuit covered approximately 12 miles and no injuries resulted from the pursuit or the crash. The 17-year-old driver is being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail on charges of Fleeing/Eluding an Officer.
