Chase Ends With Crash/Arrest

A high speed chase through Sparta last night has landed one local guy in jail.

It started around 9pm when Monroe County deputies located the owner of a truck who was wanted in connection to a complaint at a local bar in Sparta. When 29 year old Ryan Buroker was found, he sped off through the downtown at speeds reaching 90 miles an hour with 5 police cars behind him.

The chase ended up on County Highway B where Buroker lost control and struck a utility pole. After a brief foot chase and a short stint at Sparta hospital he was booked and jailed.

Buroker is being charged with numerous traffic charges to include 4th Offense OWI and Knowingly Fleeing an Officer.
