BROWN DEER -- Brown Deer police on Tuesday, October 17th released dashcam video of a police pursuit and crash that happened Sunday night, October 15th. Police are currently searching for the driver involved, 37-year-old Ronnie Farrow.
It began around 9:45 p.m. after a Brown Deer police officer conducted a traffic stop on Teutonia Avenue near Dean Road -- stopping a vehicle with a burnt out tail light. When the officer suspected the man behind the wheel was providing false information, he called for backup, to get a fingerprint.
According to police, it was determined the driver was on parole for robbery and had a full extradition felony warrant for his arrest for a probation violation.
After initially stopping, the driver fled at a high rate of speed southbound on N. Teutonia Avenue — and a pursuit ensued.
"Upon obtaining (the fingerprint) and walking back to the squad car to run the fingerprint in the system, the driver fled from the officers.Once the suspect realized we knew who he was and that he had an outstanding probation warrant for his arrest, was the reason he fled," Officer Nick Andersen with the Brown Deer Police Department said.
Police say the driver disregarded a red light on N. Teutonia Avenue at W. Good Hope Road and caused a crash that injured three people.
The driver then fled on foot though a Walgreens parking lot, jumped a fence and fled through backyards.
He has not been located.
"Officers attempted to follow the subject in both patrol cars and on foot. He was able to jump a couple of fences and elude officers prior to the perimeter being set up," Andersen said.
The driver has been identified as Ronnie Farrow -- now wanted for recklessly endangering safety.
"We are reaching out to the community, hoping that putting his information out there would result in a safe and fast apprehension of the suspect," Andersen said.
Charges will be referred to the district attorney’s office.
