Milwaukee Teen Arrested after High Speed Pursuit on I-41


A 17-year-old from Milwaukee is being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail after leading Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputies on a high speed chase early this (Thursday) morning. Just after 2 AM, a deputy observed an SUV on Interstate 41 near County Highway B that was going 98 miles per hour. The deputy eventually caught up to the SUV – but the driver accelerated up to 120 miles per hour and continued driving north on I-41, while weaving in and out of traffic.

Police had set up stop sticks, but the driver exited onto County Highway N where he lost control and crashed into the ditch. The sheriff’s office, with assistance from the State Patrol, was able to take the driver into custody without incident. The driver was the only person inside the SUV. No injuries were reported as a result of the 12-mile pursuit – and the only damage reported was to the SUV. The 17-year-old is facing charges of fleeing/eluding an officer.
