Two arrested after car chase spans three counties Friday morning

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A car chase spanned three counties early Friday morning across southeast Wisconsin.

Around 1:30 a.m. Germantown Police were notified by Waukesha County Dispatch that Milwaukee Police were chasing a car going north on I-41. MPD stopped the pursuit at County Line Road after losing radio communication.

A Germantown Police squad set up in the median of I-41 near Holy Hill when the suspect's car tried to make a u-turn almost hitting the squad. The car continued north and Germantown Police gave chase. 

Eventually, the Washington County Sheriff's Department used stop sticks to deflate the suspect's car near I-41 and Sherman Road in Slinger. 

Two suspects ran from the car. The female driver was immediately found and a man hid in nearby woods. 

Germantown K9 Hatto was used to find the man. 

At least five law enforcement agencies participated in the chase.
