GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A man convicted of stealing a car and leading police on a high-speed chase on Highway 41 has learned his fate.
In Brown County court Monday, Kyle Buckles was sentenced to 10 years in prison, along with 10 years extended supervision for the July 7, 2012 chase through Oconto and Brown counties.
Buckles stole a car, rammed another vehicle and continued on, eventually ending up in Brown County. That's where a sheriff's deputy lost control of his car during the chase, crossed the median and struck another vehicle. That driver, a Milwaukee woman, suffered serious injuries.
Judge Tammy Jo Hock made it a point to read a blow-by-blow account of the incident, saying it was necessary for the "complete and total disregard" for others Buckles showed.
