High-speed chase hits 110, before two arrests made in La Crosse County



Failing to stop for a stop sign led to bigger trouble for a couple of La Crosse area residents. 

Driver Davidde Hundt of La Crosse and passenger Stacy Wateski from Onalaska were arrested early Monday, after trying to run from a Jackson County deputy, who trailed them for 27 miles. 

Hundt allegedly sped away when the deputy tried to stop him in Melrose, Wis., around 12:30 a.m., at the intersection of Highways 108 and 71.

The vehicle was halted by stop sticks in La Crosse County, following a pursuit at speeds of up to 110 miles an hour.

Hundt and Wateski are accused of possessing meth, along with fleeing an officer.
