A man suspected of leading a police chase through Madison neighborhoods on Monday told police he and his passenger were throwing debris in hopes of stopping police.
Police said they arrested Tyler B. McIntosh, 25, of Madison, and Chelsea M. Schwaegerl, 23, after the high-speed pursuit involving University of Wisconsin and Madison police Monday afternoon.
Police said McIntosh took his van over a curb and onto the Lake Shore Path near campus during the pursuit.
Dane County dispatchers said police started pursuing the vehicle around 3:30 p.m. and ended the pursuit just before 4 p.m. Police suspected the driver was wanted on an outstanding felony warrant.
The vehicle was originally found by police in the area of the 2500 block of Chamberlin Avenue, and the pursuit continued for several minutes through the near west and southwest sides of Madison, officials said.
