Interlochen Man Accused of Leading Police on GT Co. Pursuit

Deputies in Grand Traverse County arrested a man they say led them on a chase for several miles.

It all started with a “be on the lookout” call for a man who assaulted his girlfriend and stole her car.

Deputies spotted the car on US-31, near South Airport Road. When they tried to pull him over, he took off, leading them on a chase toward Interlochen. Speeds reached about 55 to 60 mph during the pursuit. 

Deputies used tire deflation devices to bring the vehicle to a stop near Ellis Lake Road, in Green Lake Township.

The Interlochen man was arrested for running from police.

He may face additional charges in Benzie County.
