Harvey is wanted for a supervised release violation.

"His initial offense in the federal case was a carjacking and brandishing a firearm during that offense," the marshal explained.

After serving time behind bars, Harvey began a five-year supervised release in the community. He was driving in the town of Brookfield when police spotted him performing an illegal U-turn. Harvey was pulled over and handed his ID to police.

An officer smelled a strong odor of marijuana from inside the vehicle. Prosecutors say Harvey refused to step out of the car and drove off. Police followed, and the chase reached speeds in excess of 100 mph.  

"As a result of his actions in that matter, the federal system issued a violation for his supervision," the marshal said.
