BELOIT, Wis. — A Beloit man wanted on several felony and misdemeanor charges was arrested Tuesday after a high speed chase.

Rock County deputies and City of Beloit police received information just before noon that 26-year-old David Quinones was at a home on the 900 block of 10th Street.

The release said Quinones left the residence and got into his car before authorities arrived. He drove off at high speeds and led officials on a chase.

Quinones turned onto Shirland Avenue from Hackett Street at the state line and tried to pass vehicles in a no-passing zone into oncoming traffic, the release said.

Officials said Quinones struck a car at Shirland Avenue and went through a yard. The 52-year-old Beloit man who was driving the other car received treatment at a hospital and was released for minor injuries.

Quinones later hit two parked vehicles in a driveway and crashed into a detached garage, the release said. The man got out of his car and ran away as law enforcement flooded the area.

A K-9 unit was dispatched and found Quinones after about 20 minutes. Officials said he was hiding in a garage behind a home on the 200 block of Ritsher Street. Authorities forced entry into the garage and took Quinones into custody without further incident.

He was taken to a hospital for minor injuries and later brought to the Rock County Jail, where he awaits an initial appearance in jail court at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Quinones faces a number of traffic, misdemeanor and felony charges from the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, City of Beloit Police Department, Town of Beloit Police Department and Wisconsin State Patrol. He was also held on a felony probation violation through the state Department of Corrections.

Shirland Avenue was closed for roughly three hours. State Troopers are investigating the crash portion of the incident.
