An Eau Claire man is in custody after an incident in which he allegedly drove a stolen car at high speeds the wrong way on an interstate.
Police say the man — identified as John Martin — was spotted inside a stolen car in a motel parking lot. Police tried to arrest him and when he resisted, they used a Taser on him — but with no effect. He also allegedly slammed a door on an officer’s arm. Officers followed the stolen vehicle on to Interstate 94, where they reached speeds exceeding 100 miles an hour. Video shows the suspect driving the wrong way on the interstate.
Police eventually caught the suspect after the vehicle hit stop sticks they had placed on the road.
