An 18-year-old Rockford man led police on a 30-mile chase that reached speeds
of more than 135 mph on Aug. 13, according to a criminal complaint.
Dontaye M. Stewart, 226 Stiles Parkway, fled police on his motorcycle
from Highway 11 east of Elkhorn, southbound on Interstate 43 to a wooded
area off County J in Rock County, according to the complaint.
Stewart and another motorcycle passed squad cars on the right and left
shoulder of the road and increased speeds while weaving in and out of
traffic, the complaint reads.
Stewart attempted to hide in the woods, but surrendered when police
yelled for him to come out, according to the complaint.
Stewart faces a charge of felony fleeing and was ticketed $1,062 for
speeding, operating without a motorcycle license and reckless driving.
His next court date is Friday.
