Milwaukee Teenager allegedly Leads Police on Chase through Elm Grove, a Country Club and to Brookfield Square Mall
A Milwaukee teenager was charged in Waukesha County for a stolen vehicle chase that started in Elm Grove and ended at the Westmoor Country Club in Brookfield.
Marquis K. King, 19-years-old, was charged today in Waukesha Co. Circuit Court with Eluding an Officer in a Vehicle, Operate without Owners Consent, Possession of Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, and Resisting an Officer.
King was arrested on Sunday around 10:50 AM by Elm Grove Police.
According to Elm Grove Police, he allegedly took officers on a vehicle chase in a stolen vehicle starting in Elm Grove and ending at the Westmoor Country Club in Brookfield following two vehicular crashes.
King allegedly fled from officers on foot taking them on a foot chase on the golf course while armed with a .38 Taurus loaded with two federal brand ball ammunition and three SPL+P hollow point ammunition in his right hand, before running into the swimming area where he threw the firearm into the club's swimming pool.
The suspect then allegedly climbed a fence, ran across Moorland Rd. into the Brookfield Square parking lot and attempted to hide under a vehicle before running into the mall.
King was arrested moments later just outside of Sears.
Police said the suspect can be seen allegedly carrying the firearm in plain view as well as concealing the firearm later in the foot chase.
The suspect has an active warrant out of Milwaukee County for Disorderly Conduct.
King went through court this afternoon and will be released if he posts $1,500 cash bail.
The suspect’s ex-girlfriend told police the car belonged to her and she had not given him permission to take the car.
