WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A Hartland man is charged with a pair of felonies, for allegedly leading officers on a late night Interstate chase exceeding 135 miles an hour.
A $5,000 cash bond has been ordered for 32-year-old Bradley Peters, on criminal counts of fleeing officers and second-degree reckless endangerment. He’s due back in court next Wednesday for a hearing on a separate speeding charge.
Waukesha County sheriff’s deputies said an officer spot Peters’ bike going at 91 miles an hour around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday on I-94 in Brookfield. The officer apparently tried keeping up with the bike, as the squad hit its maximum speed of 135.
A second officer joined the chase, and officials said the biker stopped to avoid hitting a third squad car at an off-ramp.
Peters and his female passenger were handcuffed, but online court records did not list any charges for her.
Peters reportedly told officers he was upset after getting into a disagreement with the woman – and during the chase, she dug her fingernails into his thighs to try and get him to stop. She told officers the motorcycle’s speedometer showed a top speed of 156 during the chase.
