At 12:30 a.m., a Bloomer officer spotted the vehicle of the domestic abuse suspect and attempted to stop it. The driver failed to stop, and a chase began. Deputies from the Barron County sheriff’s office took over the chase and requested the Barron Police Department to set up spike strips on U.S. 53 at U.S. 8. The spikes punctured three tires on the car. As the vehicle came to a stop, the driver failed to get out or obey deputies’ commands. Because he might be armed, deputies approached the vehicle using a flash bang and shields. Inside, they found the driver, Michael Haile, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Chase ends in suicide
