High speed chase suspect on the Run

Police say both people who were in a car that was involved in a high speed chase this morning are now in custody.

The chase began after Marquette City and Chocolay Township Police tried to pull over a 1999 Chrysler 300.

The vehicle is wanted in connection to a breaking and entering investigation that occurred in Waushara County, Wisconsin early last week.

When officers stopped and approached, the car fled the scene, going south on US–41.

The car reached speeds over 100 miles per hour during the chase, but police say it seemed to develop engine trouble.

Officers finally stopped it on US–41 near North Peterson Road in Alger County.

The driver and a passenger both ran.

Police chased down the driver and tasered him.

The passenger escaped into nearby woods and managed to make it to the city of Marquette before being captured.

Michigan State Police, the Delta County Sheriff’s Department, the U.P. Substance Enforcement Team, the Michigan DNR, the U.S. Forest Service and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were also invovled in the investigation.
