Man arrested after high-speed chase in Polk County


Polk County (WQOW) - A western Wisconsin man has been arrested after a high-speed chase in Polk County.

Police were looking for Jordan Johnson Sunday night after he was allegedly involved in a bar fight. Witnesses said he had threatened to return with a gun.

A deputy spotted his car and gave chase, at speeds up to 90-miles an hour.  Johnson, who's from Amery, finally pulled over but wouldn't get out of the car at first because he was on the phone. The deputy who arrested him said Johnson admitted going 110 miles an hour, trying to outrun the officer. He was arrested for second-offense drunk driving, with an alcohol level nearly three-times the legal limit.
