MPD: Pursuit ends with crash, arrests; gun and drugs recovered

Milwaukee police say a police pursuit ended with a crash, arrests, and the recovery of a gun and drugs late on Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Officials say all of this unfolded near 76th and Silver Spring shortly before 10 p.m. on Wednesday -- when officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle that was operating without any registration plates and was driving without its lights on. The driver refused to stop, fled and a pursuit ensued.

The pursuit ended when the vehicle disregarded a stop sign and crashed into two other vehicles near 62nd and Capitol Drive.

The driver of the striking vehicle, a 21-year-old man from Milwaukee, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. He was taken to a hospital and later arrested.
