The teenager involved in a high-speed chase that started in Menomonee Falls and ended in Kenosha County pleaded guilty Monday to charges of fleeing an officer and operating a vehicle without consent of an owner.
Dvarion Beamon was the driver of stolen minivan that sparked a high-speed chase that passed through Menomonee Falls near Woodman's last year. In May 2012, the Menomonee Falls Police Department received word from the Milwaukee Police Department that they were in pursuit of a stolen vehicle, and the suspects were headed toward Falls.
A Falls police officer stationed near Woodman’s located the vehicle and attempted to make a traffic stop. However, the vehicle fled southbound on Highway 41/45. The officer pursued the vehicle until they reached the Watertown Plank Road exit, but it was called off by a supervisor at that time and was eventually picked up by other jurisdictions.
The chase lasted more than an hour, and ended on Interstate 94 in Kenosha County after officers used a “blow-out strip” to puncture the tires.
Beamon also pleaded guilty to burglary and home invasion. The van was stolen from ABC Daycare in Milwaukee.
