110mph on I-94: Two men arrested following separate pursuits in Waukesha County
WAUKESHA COUNTY — Waukesha County Sheriff’s officials arrested two people following separate pursuits in Waukesha County.
Sheriff’s officials say on Sunday, February 14th, around 12:30 a.m., a deputy on patrol on State Highway 164 near Watertown Road in Pewaukee observed a vehicle stop behind the squad, which then began reversing down the divided highway.
The vehicle made a quick U-turn and accelerated away from the squad.
The squad caught up to the vehicle and observed that it matched the description of a vehicle Waukesha police had been involved in a pursuit with on I-94 earlier Saturday.
The deputy attempted a traffic stop — but the vehicle continued to flee eastbound on I-94 from Pewaukee Road — reaching speeds of 110 miles-per-hour.
The vehicle eventually lost control on I-94 EB west of Calhoun Road in Brookfield, and crashed into the south side freeway chain link fence.
Two people fled the vehicle — running south through Endicott Park.
Waukesha County Sheriff K-9 Gordy assisted in a track of these suspects.
They were arrested near Judith Place and Calhoun Road.
A 21-year-old man from Milwaukee was arrested for eluding and obstructing.
A 22-year-old man was arrested for obstructing.
They were booked into the Waukesha County Jail.
No one was hurt in connection with this incident.
