According to the criminal complaint:

A Kenosha Sheriff’s Deputy monitoring traffic on I-94 noticed a dark blue SUV traveling faster than the other cars and had an obstructed rear license plate. The vehicle then sped up and changed lanes many times, prompting the Deputy to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle didn’t pull over and a chase ensued, topping 122 miles per hour in speed. The vehicle and Deputy exited off onto Highway C and proceeded north on the frontage road. The suspect vehicle crashed and smoke was coming out of the hood. Apparently, the suspect took the large curve too quickly. Garrett dropped his wallet, helping police to identify one of the occupants. A Wisconsin Trooper who was in the area asked dispatch to turn the Department of Transportation cameras towards La Quinta Inn hotel and a State Patrol Dispatcher saw a subject dump two handguns in a dumpster belonging to La Quinta. Both guns were loaded and one was reported stolen out of Milwaukee. Officers with the State Patrol, Pleasant Prairie Police Department, and Kenosha Police Department all worked together with the Sheriff’s Department and found drugs in bags along the path of escape. The two subjects were captured and were full of “cat tail fluff” after allegedly running through the swamp.

Police uncovered more that 4 pounds of marijuana. The key-fob for the vehicle that crashed was found with Garrett, so police learned who was driving.

    I predict a bright future within any Fortune 100 company, university , or public school district. Perhaps Tony Evers can put them to work somewhere in Madison.
