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.
