A man was arrested in Solon Township Tuesday after leading Michigan State Police on a high speed chase on US131 and west on 17 Mile Road.
According to Trooper Bozek, of the Michigan State Police, he tried to make a traffic stop on the silver SUV on US131, when it went by at a high rate of speed. The driver refused to stop, and instead reached speeds of over 100 mph while MSP pursued. The driver exited the expressway and then got back on, and finally exited at 17 Mile Road, and pulled over just west of Meijer.
According to a witness at Delta Tron, he heard the sirens and looked out, and said he saw police race to the vehicle and pull the driver out. He said there was also an adult passenger and young child.
Trooper Bozek said the man was arrested on outstanding warrants, and possible drugs found in the search of the car. “We won’t know for sure until they are tested,” said Bozek. He said the man had no current address.
