TREMPEALEAU, Wis. (AP) -- A teenager is facing charges in Trempealeau County where he's accused of leading officers on a chase and hitting a squad car.

Trempealeau police tried to pull the 19-year-old over Saturday night, but he took off. Officers pursued and speeds reached more than 100 miles per hour. Authorities say the teen twice hit a police squad.

WXOW-TV says the man eventually pulled over and three passengers jumped out. The teen was arrested and taken to jail.
