BREAKING NEWS: A federal appeals court rules 2-1 that subsidies that helped people buy insurance at healthcare.gov are illegal.

High speed chase ends in crash, arrest, drug charges

MOSINEE, Wis. (WSAU) -- A high speed chase ended in a crash and a drug arrest late Thursday night.

22-year-old Andrew Penrod was driving near Pepper Court without headlights when a Mosinee Police Department officer tried to pull him over. That’s when Penrod accelerated through a stop sign, starting the chase. He was able to get onto northbound I-39 at Maple Ridge Road, where speeds reached 98 miles per hour.

Penrod was apprehended after crashing into a fence and a tree in The Bonney Oak Drive neighborhood southeast of Cedar Creek Mall. He started running from officers after the crash, but eventually stopped evading officers. The complaint says Penrod had taken heroin about an hour before the chase, and had swallowed methamphetamine to keep officers from finding it.

Penrod is charged attempting to flee an officer, possession of methamphetamine, operating while revoked, and operating with a controlled substance. He’s jailed on a $25,000 cash bond awaiting his next court appearance April 23rd.

This is not Penrod’s first run in with the law. He was awaiting court proceedings for theft charges, and has a lengthy history of drug charges, fleeing officers, and driving several times with a revoked license.
