SPARTA, Wis (WEAU)— A Sparta man is in Monroe County jail after leading deputies on high speed chase. Deputies say they tried to pull over 51-year-old Brian Brannon of Sparta, who was driving a stolen car on Highway 27, just outside Black River Falls around 9:00 Saturday night. Instead of cooperating Brannon took off on Hwy 27 leading deputies on a chase in the wrong lane of traffic and into Monroe County. The chase ended when state troopers laid out spikes on the roadway near Sparta. Multiple charges are expected to be filed, including an 8th OWI.
