Deputies located a suspicious vehicle on southbound Sprinkle Rd near ML Ave that was referenced in an alert that went out earlier in the evening. The registered owner of the suspicious vehicle already had warrants for possession of methamphetamine.
When a traffic stop was attempted, the vehicle fled onto I-94 westbound. The pursuit continued onto US-131 northbound until the driver lost control and ran off the roadway getting stuck in the median near B Ave.
The driver, a 34 yr old Portage man, was arrested for fleeing and eluding, PWID meth, meth lab, and R&O. The passenger, a 28 yr old Kalamazoo man, was arrested on unrelated warrants. Both are currently lodged in the KCSO Jail.
