Blown Tire Marks Lead To Suspects Arrest

An officer attempted to make a routine traffic stop Saturday night for speeding, however the driver had other intentions and fled at a high rate of speed.  During the pursuit the suspect struck another vehicle and continued to elude officers.  Given the speed and safety of the public, the officers discontinued the pursuit.   The suspect blew a tire during the pursuit and was eventually located by the trail of marks the rim left in the roadway leading to his residence. The trail of marks led officers from 18th and Utah crossing the bridge to the west side of Sturgeon Bay.   The suspect was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated 4th offense along with multiple other offenses.  The Sturgeon Bay Police Department would like to thank the bridge tender for contacting officers with information regarding the suspect.
