A man with five prior convictions for operating motor vehicles while intoxicated, and a felony arrest warrant for violation of parole from an operating while intoxicated conviction, was arrested last night after leading police officers on a pursuit that went from Milwaukee to Racine County.
On Tuesday, June 5, 2012, at about 6:10 p.m., a Milwaukee Police Sergeant was flagged down by citizens who had just been involved in a motor vehicle collision near West Layton Avenue and South Howell Avenue. An SUV had struck an automobile occupied by two people and was leaving the scene southbound on Howell Avenue.
The Sergeant pursued the striking SUV into Caledonia, where eventually the suspect’s auto was stopped with the assistance of members of the Racine County Sheriff’s Department. The 33-year-old male driver was arrested for duty upon striking (hit and run) of an occupied motor vehicle while intoxicated, fleeing police and resisting an officer. The two citizens in the automobile that had been stuck by the suspect’s SUV were not injured.
