Man Gets Away After High Speed Chase

Posted: Updated:

Local deputies say a man got away after a high speed chase through two counties.

We're told the chase happened late Saturday night, around 11:00.

Police tell us it started on Thompsonville Highway in Benzie County and ended in Manistee County.

They say a man squealed his tires, pulling away from a stop sign.

When the deputy started following him, the suspect hit the gas.

Deputies say the driver went into a ditch and took off on foot.

The man police are looking for has spent time in prison before for similar incidents.
