Multi-state Police chase suspect arraigned

IRON RIVER — An Iron River man is off to jail for taking police on a multi–state pursuit late last year.

Twenty–two year old Martin Cooper III was sentenced to six months in jail and 18 months probation this morning in Iron County Circuit Court. He pleaded guilty to one count of third degree fleeing and eluding back in April.

On December 17th, Martin led police on a chase that started in Crystal Falls Township and ended in Wisconsin. Cooper will have to participate in Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse treatment programs as part of his probation, stemming from charges in the same case in Wisconsin.
