St. Germain man involved in high-speed chase

A St. Germain man led a Wisconsin State Patrol trooper in a high-speed chase Monday night along I-39 just south of Mosinee. The man was eventually apprehended and taken into custody.

The chase occurred after the trooper conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle being driven by Randy A. Young, 54, of St. Germain. After the trooper obtained identification, Young sped away from the scene northbound along I-39. A chase ensued, reaching speeds of more than 100 mph over a nine-mile stretch. Young eventually slowed down and pulled his vehicle to the shoulder of the road. He exited his vehicle and walked into a ditch area ignoring the commands of the trooper, according to a press release from the state patrol.

Young was taken into custody a short time later. The trooper observed that Young had a self-inflicted knife wound in his neck area.

Young is being charged with operating after revocation, possession of open intoxicants in a motor vehicle and fleeing an officer.
