3rd suspect arrested in multi-car police chase that included Sterling Heights cruiser
Two men have been arraigned in a Macomb County chase and now a third is in custody.
The suspects who police said led a wild chase through Macomb County and into Detroit were arraigned Thursday on felony charges.
Investigators said that the third passenger, who got out of the Fusion in Detroit and fled to escape the scene, was in custody Thursday night.
Anthony Brown and Marcino Lattner were arraigned on charges from the high speed police chase through Macomb County which ended Tuesday morning in a Detroit neighborhood.
They are accused of causing chaos in two counties and leading the chase at speeds of over 100 miles per hour.
Lattner is accused of stealing a Sterling Heights police vehicle and was arraigned on four felonies including fleeing and eluding police and malicious destruction of police property.
Sterling Heights Police were called to the area of Hall Road and M-53 Tuesday to gunshots involving two cars: a Dodge Durango and Ford Fusion. When officers arrived, they found the Durango and tried to stop the SUV, only to realize it was also chasing the Fusion.
Three men were inside the Fusion and led police on a chase. At one point, someone got out of the car and circled back around to steal the police vehicle. Officers then chased the patrol vehicle as the driver in the stolen squad car started talking over dispatch to police, asking them where the nearest hospital was. He admitted he was the one they were chasing and telling them the driver of the Durango had been firing shots and he had been hit.
That chase ended at I-94 and 12 Mile where he collided with a Macomb County Sheriff car. That suspect was taken into custody and nobody was hurt.
The other man charged was Brown, 30. He was the one in bright red pants who was eventually tracked down in a Detroit neighborhood.
