MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (WFRV) – Authorities in southeastern Wisconsin were involved in a high-speed chase on Wednesday night, where two suspects were eventually taken into custody.
The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office reports that on February 8, 2023, around 10:30 p.m., the Mount Pleasant Police Department was involved in a high-speed chase on State Highway 31.
However, officers decided to terminate the pursuit of the white Kia Soul due to safety concerns and notified surrounding agencies of the incident.
