King faces the following charges:

  • Vehicle operator flee/elude officer
  • Operate without owner’s consent
  • Possession of cocaine
  • Possession of marijuana
  • Resisting or obstructing an officer.

The Elm Grove Police Department indicates King was arrested just before 11:00 a.m. on Sunday after he took officers on a vehicle chase in a stolen vehicle starting in Elm Grove and ending at the Westmoor Country Club in Brookfield following two vehicular crashes.

Officials say King then fled from officers on foot, taking them on a foot chase on the golf course while armed with a .38 Taurus loaded with two federal brand ball ammunition and three SPL+P hollow point ammunition in his right hand, before running into the swimming area where he threw the firearm into the club’s swimming pool.

Officials say King then climbed a fence, ran across Moorland Rd. into the Brookfield Square parking lot and attempted to hide under a vehicle before running into the mall. King was arrested moments later just outside of Sears.

King had an active warrant out of Milwaukee County for Disorderly Conduct. He is due back in court for his preliminary hearing on Wednesday, September 21st.

    All these runners should try out for the Olympics. They could live off of the royalties of endorsements on ads for the rest of their lives.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. If he’d have jumped into the pool and swam instead of throwing the gun in. . . kind of a mini urban iron man event.

    What have we done that these young people disrespect us like this. I believe it’s the family structure that doesn’t exist in the black culture. Back in our day this would never have happened and the only ones to blame are the democrats that keep on paying for mommas to have babies as a career goal on the broken backs of hard working citizens. Shame on the democrats and their liberal policies they are to blame.

    Why does it matter what kind of bullets were in the gun. Fox news have some respect for yourself and stop sensationalizing every story involving a firearm with terms only some will truly understand and others will just get confused and call for banning scary +p ammunition. “.38 Taurus loaded with two federal brand ball ammunition and three SPL+P hollow point ammunition” all you needed was “a loaded Taurus .38 cal handgun”. Was this about word count?
