Police chase started in Wisconsin ends in Iron Mountain, 28-year-old man arrested


IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (Radio Results Network) — A late-night police chase that started in Florence, Wisconsin, ended in Iron Mountain Wednesday morning after the suspect barricaded himself in a home and lied about holding a child hostage inside.

The Dickinson and Florence County Sheriffs said in a joint press release that the “felony pursuit” incident started on US-2 in Florence at about 10:30 p.m.

Moments later, the Dickinson County sheriff’s department put “stop sticks” at the state line, and the suspect hit them and also crashed into a sheriff’s vehicle, heavily damaging it.

The suspect kept going, on just two tires, and went into a home at 511 Fifth Street in Iron Mountain.

After saying that he had a kid inside with him, the Dickinson County Critical Incident Response Team was activated to negotiate, and the 28-year-old Michigan resident was arrested at about 1:30 in the morning without further incident.
