By Beth Milligan | June 15, 2019

A Leelanau County Sheriff's Office deputy arrested a driver following a short high-speed pursuit Thursday.

The deputy clocked a Jeep Cherokee going 92mph east on M-72 near Fritz Road. The deputy turned and pursued the Jeep, which continued at a high rate of speed away from the deputy and then abruptly turned south onto Fritz Road. The deputy was able to then close in on the Jeep, which pulled to a stop.

The driver, a 57-year-old Lake Ann man, was placed under arrest for fleeing and eluding police. The deputy also detected an odor of alcohol coming from the driver and signs of impairment, with the driver additionally lodged on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, second offense. The man was taken to Leelanau County Jail.
