Two teens were arrested overnight after leading deputies on a high-speed chase in stolen car in Manitowoc County. 

At 12:46 a.m. on Friday, deputies received a report of a stolen vehicle from the 1200 block of South 13th Street in Manitowoc.

Several minutes later, deputies located the vehicle traveling northbound on North Rapids Road and attempted to pull over the car on County Road R.

The driver fled from deputies and reached speeds of 115 miles per hour before losing control of the car in the township of Gibson.  The car was said to have spun 180 degrees before stopping in the southbound lane of County R. When the driver attempted to make a U-turn, he entered the east ditch and became stuck. 

The 14-year-old driver was immediately taken into custody. 

The passenger ran from deputies but was later arrested. He has been identified as Aaron Booker, 17, from Manitowoc. 

The 14-year-old was charged with fleeing from an officer, recklessly endangering safety, operating without owner’s consent, operating under the influence of a controlled substance, operating after suspension, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is currently being held in the Sheboygan County Juvenile Detention Center. 

Officials say Booker was arrested for a felony and non-felony bench warrant which originated from a charge of operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent. He was also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the Manitowoc County Jail.
