MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. (WXYZ) — Newly released dashcam video shows the intense moments from Tuesday's wild police chase in Macomb County.

The suspect stole a police cruiser and led Sterling Heights officers on a chase through county roadways.

Police arrested a third suspect Thursday involved in a series of alleged crimes that spawned from a road rage incident.

“Our roadways in Macomb County turned into the Wild West,” said Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith. “To put innocent citizens’ lives in jeopardy so that these suspects could even up some type of score is heinous in its purist definition."

“Our Office has authorized the most serious charges on the books for these defendants for what they’ve done.”

The incident began when Lettner, Brown and a third, unknown suspect confronted Hubert. The suspects got back into their Ford Fusion and Hubert got into his black Duango and followed the men at a high rate of speed on M-59.

Hubert fired at the Fusion. The vehicles then headed south on M-53 where Sterling Heights police got involved, however, neither suspect vehicles stopped and were traveling at a rate more than 100 mph.

Sterling Heights police, Warren, Clinton Township and the Macomb County Sheriff's Department were involved in the pursuit.
