A 19-year old Newaygo man is in police custody after taking sheriff deputies on a chase through three counties.
It began Wednesday, in Newaygo County's Big Prairie Township, that's where Deputies tried to perform a traffic stop on a burgundy BMW for vehicle violations and the suspet's car took off.
During the pursuit the BMW went north on S Elm Ave from E 36th St, east on E Baseline Rd and then went into Mecosta County. Members of the Central Michigan Enforcement Team (CMET) located the BMW on US 131 and followed it as it returned to Newaygo County at E 36th St and S Newcosta Ave. Members of the Sheriff’s Office again tried to stop it on S Croton-Hardy Dr near E 48th St. The vehicle then went into Montcalm County where members of the Sheriff’s Office lost sight of it. While searching the area, the Sheriff’s Office located the vehicle south on Amy School Rd south of Tamarack Rd.
The BMW then went west on Gates Rd and then into a private driveway.
A 19-year-old Newaygo man was taken into custody without incident and lodged at the Newaygo County Jail.
