Wrong-way driver leads officers on I-41 chase


ASHWAUBENON (WKOW) — New video shows a dangerous chase of a driver going the wrong way on a Wisconsin highway.

Video from the Brown County Sheriff’s Office shows a deputy picking up the chase on Interstate 41 in Ashwaubenon — after it had already gone on for more than 30 miles.

Dashcam footage shows the suspect’s red truck going across the median, into oncoming traffic.

He goes up an on-ramp and across the grass again before the deputy is able to spin out the truck.

The suspect jumped out and ran, officers were able to find him hiding inside a nearby business.

The driver — 40-year old Jonathon Tease — faces numerous charges — including fleeing, resisting and second offense OWI.

Investigators believe he was under the influence of drugs.
