The chase on October 13th began on I-41 in the Town of Eldorado as a reckless driver complaint. It covered 13 miles ending at Highway 151 and Highway 49 outside of Waupun where Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies and Waupun Police had put down tire deflation devices. With his tires deflated deputies boxed in his vehicle. Rivera allegedly went over 100 miles an hour during portions of the pursuit.
