      Driver leads police on multi-county high speed chase

      Michael Kenny was charged with fleeing and eluding an officer and operating with a suspended license.

      A high-speed chase led to the arrest of a 28-year-old man suspected in breaking and enterings in two counties.

      Sunday morning around 3:40, Michigan State Police troopers saw a black, four-door Cadillac with improper license plates and tried to stop the car.

      The driver did not pull over and instead accelerated to over 100 miles per hour south on Old 27 in Bagley Township. The driver then entered I-75 southbound in Waters continuing at a high speed.

      Grayling police were forced to use stop sticks and deflated the front tires of the car, but the driver continued driving on the rims.

      Troopers then spun out the car safely, sending it into a ditch.

      The driver, identified as Michael Jacob Kenny II, was taken into custody. During a search of the car, several items were found and identified as stolen items taken from a Gaylord business. Additional items were recovered from a breaking and entering at another local business several days prior.

      Kenny was charged with fleeing and eluding an officer and operating with a suspended license.

      Kenny is scheduled to be back in court on June 12. At this time, he remains in jail on a $20,000 bond.
