A Wisconsin teen led seven police agencies from Iowa and Wisconsin on a lengthy high-speed chase Thursday that ended with at least five vehicles damaged and shots fired by police, but no injuries. Charges are pending against 16-year-old Joseph Neeley, of Bloomington, Wisconsin, in Clayton County and in Grant County, Wisconsin. The chase began in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and went into Marquette and McGregor in Iowa before returning to Prairie du Chien. The chase ended back in Marquette when Neeley collided head-on with another vehicle. He was taken into custody by Clayton County deputies. Clayton County Sheriff Robert Hamann said Neeley was released to his father, who then turned him over to Wisconsin authorities. According to several police agencies, shots were fired by law enforcement at Neeley’s vehicle after he drove through a road block as he came into Iowa a second time. Police say Neeley was driving a stolen sports utility vehicle. Prairie du Chien police originally tried to stop Neeley at about 9:51 a.m. Neeley also was wanted in connection with a hit-and run accident and a theft earlier in the day.
