BROWN DEER — Brown Deer police are searching for a driver following a police pursuit and crash that happened Sunday night, October 15th.

It began around 9:45 p.m. after a Brown Deer police officer conducted a traffic stop on Teutonia Avenue near Dean Road.

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.

Police say the driver disregarded a red light on N. Teutonia Avenue at W. Good Hope Road and caused a three-vehicle accident with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver then fled on foot though a Walgreens parking lot, jumped a fence and fled through backyards. He was not located — but police say his identity is known.

Charges will be referred to the district attorney’s office.
