Posted: Updated:

TOWN OF PRENTICE (WKOW) -- Three teens are arrested after leading officers on a high speed chase across Lincoln and Price Counties in northern Wisconsin.

Authorities say speeds topped 110 mph Tuesday night.  An officer conducting a business security check in Tomahawk noticed a suspicious vehicle with three occupants inside.  That's when the chase began.  The teens lead deputies down Highway 8 and ended about 30 miles later in Price County after tire spikes were thrown down.

Two of the teenagers are 17-years-old and the other 16.  According to deputies, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found inside.
