Prosecutors in Washburn County are pushing felony charges against a local man after a high-speed chase last month.
The D.A. is moving ahead with 15 felonies, most of them for recklessly endangering safety, against 50-year-old Chad Rollins from Chippewa Falls. Deputies tried to stop him back on June 25th on Highway 53 near Minong. He sped away. The sheriff’s office says the chase topped-out at 95 miles-per-hour, and says Rollins was able to lose the deputies that night. Deputies found him the next day and arrested him. Rollins is due in court later today.
