Rhinelander man arrested after chase, near suicide

TOWN OF PELICAN, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in the Northwoods avoided a potential shooting incident Tuesday, when they took a Rhinelander man into custody.

Oneida County sheriff's deputies said they approached a 51-year-old man in a motel parking lot for questioning about some recent burglaries. But the man drove away and led the officers on a chase through Rhinelander which ended when his car got stuck in the snow in the nearby town of Pelican.

Officials said the man then held a weapon to his head, and police negotiators were able to take him into custody without incident.

Sheriff Grady Hartman said a potentially dangerous situation was prevented with the help of Oneida County emergency personnel, the State Patrol, and police officers from Rhinelander and Three Lakes.
