Police chase zooms through Dickinson, Menominee counties

NADEAU TOWNSHIP, MI— A Florida man is lodged in the Menominee County Jail, following a multi-county police chase Wednesday.

Around 7:55 p.m., deputies from the Menominee County Sheriff's Office were notified of a high-speed vehicle pursuit occurring on US-2 in Dickinson County. The Dickinson County Sheriff's Office requested assistance in placing “stop sticks” as the pursuit approached the Menominee County line.

After successfully evading multiple sets of stop sticks in Dickinson County, the pursuit entered Menominee County around 8:06 p.m. Speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour were recorded.

The driver avoided another stop stick checkpoint on US-2 near Powers. The chase continued on US-2/41 and a number of county roads before stopping around 8:36 p.m. on a rural two-track road in Nadeau Township.

The 53-year-old driver was taken into custody on a charge of fleeing and eluding.

No injuries were reported during the pursuit.

The Iron Mountain Police Department, Michigan State Police, Hannahville Tribal Police Department, Dickinson County Central Dispatch, and Menominee County 911 assisted in the incident.
