11/14: A Jackson County Sheriff squad car

Deputies arrested two people for leading officers on a high speed chase.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Department says once officers pulled the truck over, 17-year-old Bradley Tuchalski and 23-year-old John Dockerty hopped out and started running.

Deputies arrested them after a short foot chase.
It started just before 4:00 a.m. Thursday in Black River Falls.
A deputy tried to pull their truck over, but it took off heading south on highway 27 toward Sparta.

Monroe County Sheriff's deputies joined in and used a spike strip to deflate the truck's tires.

Investigators say the truck was stolen from Sparta.
Jackson County Sheriff Duane Waldera says Dockerty also had a warrant out for sexual assault of a child.
Both men will face criminal charges in Jackson County.
