TWO RIVERS, Wis. (WFRV) — A 22-year-old Manitowoc man has been arrested following a vehicle pursuit on Friday.

The Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Office says that at about 9:35 a.m., officers from the Two Rivers Police Department attempted to stop a 2006 Ford Fusion driven by Jacob Hetue, who had a valid Felony Arrest Warrant from the Department of Corrections.

At 6:46 a.m., a Sheriff’s Deputy located the vehicle traveling southbound on Old Q Road in the township of Kossuth.

When the deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop, Hetue again fled.

Officials say the pursuit ended in Manitowoc when they used a Pursuit Intervention Technique near the intersection of N. 8th Street and Waldo Boulevard.

Hetue’s vehicle spun out and temporarily stopped in a yard on the northeast side of the intersection.

He tried to flee again, but a deputy pinned the vehicle. Hetue then refused to exit the vehicle and ignored verbal commands.

Deputies say Manitowoc County K-9 Keto was then used to assist with the apprehension of Hetue.

He was arrested for Fleeing, Operating While Intoxicated, Operating with a Revoked Driver’s License, Resisting Arrest, and the DOC Warrant.

The pursuit lasted 8.2 miles with top speeds of 95 mph.
