Shortly after high winds swept through southeast Wisconsin Sunday night, Glendale police spotted a stolen Acura. The car was being driven recklessly. Speeds reached 100 miles per hour through a construction zone on I-43 – and for safety reasons, officers terminated the pursuit near Capitol Drive.
A few moments later, officers checked the area and found the stolen car totals – and the driver on the run.
Glendale police tell us it was a 15-year-old behind the wheel of that stolen car that left its mark in front of this house near 8th and Atkinson. Police say they arrested the 15-year-old boy. He was taken to the Milwaukee County Children's Center.
Menomonee Falls chase
Just a half-hour later in Waukesha County, one person was arrested after a police chase in Menomonee Falls. This, after police began investigating an attempted theft in the Town of Lisbon. Police deployed stop sticks and a 23-year-old driver was arrested. Charges will include possession of burglary tools – and fleeing from police.
This police chase began as a case of reckless driving around 2:40 a.m. Monday. The suspect car lost control and hit the tree before hitting the guard rail on a dead end. Police say the suspect got away. It is not known whether the car in this chase was stolen.
