Posted:

GRANT COUNTY, Wis. (KWWL) -- Authorities in Grant County Wisconsin say an Iowa teen is in custody after a vehicle pursuit reaching speeds of 130 miles per hour.

The sheriff's department says deputies tried to stop 19-year-old Devon Torres from Dubuque Friday night for speeding and driving on the wrong side of the center line.

They say Torres, with a 17-year old girl riding along, sped into Iowa, and Wisconsin deputies contacted Dubuque authorities.

Deputies say Torres tried to shake his pursuers by driving through downtown Dubuque.

But police ended his escape attempt with stop sticks, disabling his car.

He was then taken into custody.
