Police release video of Trempealeau Co. high-speed chase


Trempealeau County (WQOW) - Video released by police shows us what they were up against during a high-speed chase last weekend.

A chase hit speeds of over 100 miles an hour in Trempealeau County. This is video from the Trempealeau Police Department. Officers tried to pull over Austin Ratkus for traffic violations. 

Instead of stopping, he sped up twice. The officer's squad car was hit and at one point, and the passengers inside the truck jumped out. 

No one was hurt. Ratkus eventually pulled over on his own and was arrested.  He's been charged with two felonies.
