A Battle Creek, MI man was finally stopped by police in Coldwater after a two county high speed chase on Sunday.

Michigan Authorities say 31-year-old Joshua Allan Miller was wanted on charges of kidnapping and driving a stolen vehicle with improper plates. Miller is now in the Branch County Jail following the high speed chase, where he was booked on preliminary charges of Felonious Assault with a Vehicle, along with Fleeing and Eluding.

The incident started when the Battle Creek Police Department were called to the 5700 block of Beckley Road, near M-66, around 3 p.m. after getting a tip that the suspect was in that area. After an “extensive search” and further investigation, an officer saw the suspect leaving the area in a black vehicle.

Battle Creek authorities discovered the vehicle had been stolen.

Reports from authorities indicate that the pursuit reached speeds of over 100 miles an hour as it went south on I-69 from Calhoun County into Branch County, Michigan.

A Branch County Sheriff’s Deputy was able to deploy Stop Sticks at the overpass at Dayburg Road, which resulted in the suspects vehicle tires flattening. The chase slowed down to around 95 mph at Jonesville Road as the suspect’s tires started coming apart.

The chase then moved onto U.S. 12 and headed towards downtown Coldwater.

After the chase went through a red light at Michigan Avenue, a Branch County Sheriff’s Deputy was able to end the pursuit by pinning the vehicle into the curb at Munson Street. The suspect was quickly apprehended and taken into custody.

A Branch County and Calhoun County Sheriff vehicle were damaged during the chase. No one was hurt in the incident.

Agencies involved in the chase included Battle Creek and Marshall Police, the Branch and Calhoun County Sheriff’s Departments and the Michigan State Police.
