ALBANY, Wis. - An Albany man was hospitalized and charged after leading police on two pursuits Saturday night, officials said.

Green County deputies responded to reports of a domestic dispute around 6:30 p.m. at a home on Psalms Way Road in the town of Albany, according to a release.

Officials said when they arrived Joseph W. Carow, 23, fled from deputies resulting in a pursuit that police ended.

Deputies were called back to the home around 8:40 p.m. when Carow and a female passenger took a vehicle without the owner's permission and fled the scene, resulting in another pursuit, according to the release.

Stop sticks were used, which deflated one tire; Carow drove off the road and sideswiped a power pole on Highway 104 in the town of Brooklyn, deputies said.

Carow and his passenger were transported to area hospitals, according to the release. Carow remains in the hospital at this time.

Carow is tentatively charged with disorderly conduct, two counts of fleeing police, operating a motor vehicle without the owner's consent, and third-offense operating while intoxicated causing injury and reckless endangerment, according to the release. Additional traffic charges are pending.
