SHERWOOD — A Kaukauna man led authorities on a lengthy chase Wednesday that went from Sherwood to Stockbridge then back up to the village of Harrison before he was stopped.

The 32-year-old man was eventually taken into custody and deputies learned his driver’s license was revoked and he was out on bond.

Inside the vehicle deputies located drug paraphernalia, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

The man currently is in custody at the Calumet County Correctional Facility. He was not identified by authorities in the news release.

The chase began when a deputy from the Calumet County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a vehicle Wednesday about 5 p.m. in the Town of Woodville just outside of Sherwood.

The vehicle had no plates and fled from the deputy at a high rate of speed, according to the news release.

A second deputy attempted to use tire deflation devices to end the pursuit, but the driver averted the devices and drove into the ditch.

The vehicle then returned to the road and continued eluding law enforcement, according to the news release.

The pursuit continued to Lakeshore Dr. and County Highway EE at this point due to concerns for the safety of other motorists deputies ended the chase.

The vehicle then drove southbound on Wisconsin Highway 55 toward the Village of Stockbridge and people in the area began calling in complaints.

Witnesses reported the vehicle driving into oncoming traffic and running a vehicle off the road.

Due to the escalating reckless driving behavior of the vehicle, deputies again attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle. The vehicle again attempted to elude officers. Tire deflation devices were successfully deployed three times. After the third deployment, the vehicle came to a stop on Wisconsin Highway 55 near High Cliff Rd in the Village of Harrison.
