A Low-Speed Chase Ends in Jail Time

A 21-year-old man was arrested after he led police on a chase that never exceeded 27 miles per hour.

A 21-year-old Menomonee Falls man was arrested after leading police on a pursuit where speeds never exceeded 27 miles per hour. 

The man was caught driving along Rivercrest Road and Shady Lane without his seatbelt and a faulty brake light. When police attempted to stop the man's vehicle, he decided not to stop and led police on a slow, but dangerous, chase along County Line Road. 

The man failed to stop at a red light at County Line Road and Richfield Way, and police saw him using his cell phone while traveling at 27 miles per hour. The man later admitted to police he was calling home in preparation to run from the stop. 

When they eventually arrived at the man's home, the police conducted a high-risk stop and he was ordered to place his hands on the side of his truck. When he was arrested, the man told police he possessed a marijuana joint and pipe in his center console. 

The man had an outstanding warrant through Washington County for possession of a controlled substance. He also had a revoked identification card. He was had been ordered to install an Ignition Interlock Device, which he failed to install. 

The man is now facing state charges for eluding, an IID violation, operating with a revoked license, and possession of paraphernalia. He was sent to jail, but posted a $1,000 bond.
