A Lake Geneva man is accused of doing some fairly significant damage in two separate incidents before leading police on a chase down the county line.
According to a press release from the Mount Pleasant Police Department, Nakia Morris, 37, of Lake Geneva, was driving a tractor truck without a trailer in the 2400 block of Racine Street at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Witnesses told police he also struck a stop sign before fleeing south on Sheridan Road.
Officers report that Morris turned right to drive westbound on Highway KR. The suspect was seen swerving from side-to-side and not pulling over despite being followed by a marked squad car using full lights and siren. Police say there was extensive damage to Morris' truck visible to them during the pursuit.
MPPD contacted the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department and together the agencies managed to pull Morris over at 30th Avenue and Wood Road, just south of the village's border. Morris was taken into custody and transported to Wheaton Franciscan for a blood draw for suspicion of driving while intoxicated. He is expected to be charged with failure to yield for an emergency vehicle and hit and run.
Prior to the accident on Racine Street, the statement says, Morris was involved in another hit-and-run in the 2000 block of Franklin Street in the city. Racine Police report that Morris hit and knocked down a pole, leaving wires strewn on the ground. Charges are expected as a result of that crash as well.
