The driver refused to stop until reaching the 3000 block of Ashford Lane in the Arbor Hills neighborhood, according to the release.

Numerous officers responded to the scene because the occupants of the vehicle were not initially cooperative, officials said. Officers eventually took into custody a number of juveniles.

The driver was a Madison-area juvenile who was AWOL from a Milwaukee-area group home, according to the release.

No one was injured in the incident, officials said.
