VIDEO: Suspect captured by police following high-speed chase

MASON COUNTY — A 25-year-old Shelby man was arrested by Mason County sheriff’s deputies on charges of fleeing and eluding, methamphetamine possession and driving while license suspended following a high-speed chase with speeds reaching nearly 100 mph Wednesday night, Dec. 14, shortly after 10:30 p.m., according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

A deputy attempted a traffic stop on a 2008 Ford Edge for a speeding violation of 88 mph in 55 mph zone, said Sheriff Cole. “The suspect vehicle fled southbound on Angling Roadd to Jebavy Drive, then southbound onto Jebavy Drive and then eastbound on Fisher Road. At times, speeds reached nearly 100 mph.

“The pursuit traveled through Hamlin, Victory and Pere Marquette townships and covered numerous roads,” said the sheriff. “During the pursuit, a Mason County Sheriff’s Office deputy set up ‘stop sticks’ on Rasmussen Road and Jebavy Drive. The stick deployment was successful in deflating tires on the suspect vehicle.

“The suspect vehicle, following the deployment of the ‘stop sticks’ turned westbound onto Bryant Road and pulled to the side of the road. The suspect then fled on foot into the woods, where he was captured following a short foot chase.”

The suspect remains lodged in the Mason County Jail. The Ludington Police Department assisted deputies during the chase, which lasted 10 minutes.
