A Frederic man wanted on a Barron County felony forgery warrant allegedly led multiple police departments on a two-county high-speed chase late Friday night. 

It started after a Cumberland traffic stop around 11:10 p.m. and headed east on Hwy. 48 at speeds reaching 100 mph. 

The pursuit entered Rice Lake, went south on Main Street at more than double the speed limit and continued south to Cameron and then headed east on Hwy 8 to Weyerhaeuser in Rusk County, where the man was apprehended around 2:20 a.m.

According to Barron County Jail Records, 38-year-old Joshua A. Denetz was booked on charges including first-degree recklessly endangering safety, felony bail jumping and fleeing an officer.
