    Wisconsin deputies engage in 100 mph chase

    PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — A 24-year-old Platteville man took Grant County authorities on a high-speed chase reaching speeds over 100 mph early Saturday morning before being arrested for drunken driving.

    The Grant County Sheriff’s office said Jesse Silvers will face charges of operating while intoxicated and eluding a law enforcement officer.

    Authorities said a deputy was checking on a suspicious parked car when it took off. The chase reached speeds over 100 mph and stop sticks didn’t stop the suspect’s car.

    Authorities then performed a rolling road block that disabled the vehicle, and police said they chased Silvers into a corn field.

    Authorities said Silvers briefly continued to resist arrest even after they used a Taser on him.
