HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A routine traffic stop turned into a chaotic pursuit on I-94 Thursday morning.

According to authorities, Macomb County Sheriff’s deputies made a traffic stop just before 12:30 a.m. on a red Chevrolet pickup truck near Crocker Boulevard and Reimold Road. Police said the truck pulled away as the deputy approached and fled on I-94 eastbound. The pursuit went on for miles, police said.
