Southeast Wisconsin police chases; 3 separate communities, hours apart

A teenager behind the wheel of a stolen car took police on a high-speed chase from Glendale to Milwaukee. But that is not the only police chase being investigated on Monday, Sept. 26.

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.
