Hudson man strikes plea bargain for high-speed chase

Posted:

Hudson (WQOW) - A western Wisconsin man who got 19 traffic tickets for leading police on a high-speed chase strikes a plea bargain.

Back in September, Hudson police tried to stop Anthony Saraceno. They say he led them on a chase through residential areas and a city park.  They say speeds hit 65 in a 25-zone, and a pedestrian had to jump out of the way to avoid getting hit.

The chase eventually led into Minnesota, where Saraceno was caught when he crashed.  This week he was fined more than eleven-hundred dollars and ordered not to drive for six months. He must also maintain absolute sobriety during a year of probation.
