High speed chase leads to arrest in Converse County
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming Highway Patrol says a motorcycle rider lead troopers on a high speed chase through Platte and Converse counties Wednesday afternoon.
Troopers say it started around 1 PM when they got a complaint about a white motorcycle heading north at more than 100 MPH north of Wheatland.
