Eau Claire County (WQOW) – A man facing a number of charges in several different counties, including a police chase here in Eau Claire County, was sentenced Tuesday.

Brandon Pember was ordered to serve seven years of probation on charges from five different cases.

In August, police tried to stop Pember for driving a stolen pickup truck. He hit speeds of 80 mph, leading officers through alfalfa and corn fields before getting stuck and trying to run away.

Six months of jail time was stayed, pending further action on an on-going case.
