MARSHFIELD — A Spencer man was in the Wood County Jail after leading Marshfield police on a chase through part of the city over the weekend.
Kurt Fehrenbach, 43, was arrested on charges of operating while under the influence and fleeing an officer, which is a felony.
According to Marshfield police, officers were led on a pursuit when attempts to stop Fehrenbach were initially unsuccessful shortly after midnight on Aug. 27. The pursuit went for 2½ miles and lasted seven minutes.
