The driver refused to stop, and a chase began. The pursuit went onto Highway 794 at Edgerton Avenue – speeds topping 100 mph. Due to safety concerns, officers called it off near Howard Avenue in St. Francis.

Several minutes later, the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office notified Cudahy police that the car was involved in a rollover crash near Veterans Park off Lincoln Memorial Drive.

That's when three people – including Young – were arrested. Officials said two guns were found in the car, which was reported stolen out of Illinois. Authorities also found drugs – crack cocaine and heroin.

Young was one of three people charged in connection to the chase. The alleged driver, Terrence Canady, is scheduled to go to trial in August. Danielle Carey is charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin.
