Illinois Man Arrested After High Speed Chase On I-94

There were some harrowing moments for people driving along I-94 between Kalamazoo and New Buffalo Tuesday afternoon as police from several agencies were engaged in a high-speed chase. It started at the Target store in Portage on a report of retail fraud, and the 23-year-old suspect from Illinois dragged a Portage cop with his car as he tried to talk to him. The suspect changed directions a few times once on I-94, with the chase covering 90 miles in less than an hour. He was finally caught when he went into a ditch at Exit 1 in New Buffalo trying to get onto La Porte Road. The suspect is locked up in the Van Buren County Jail awaiting charges in Kalamazoo County.
