MENOMONEE FALLS- TODAY'S TMJ4 is hearing for the first time from the state troopers involved in Wednesday's high-speed chase -- that led authorities through Waukesha, Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha Counties.

All five suspects in the chase are under arrest and being held at the Milwaukee County jail.

It was a high-speed chase the likes of which we don't usually see in Milwaukee, at some points hitting nearly 110 mph. 

Two of the state patrol officers tailing the suspects describe it as high stress and high adrenaline.

"The whole time you don't know what's going to happen," said Wisconsin State Patrol Inspector Scott Gouin.  "You don't know if they're armed or what their plan is or if they're making plans or loading guns in there."

Inspectors Scott Gouin and Bradley Ocain were working in Racine County Wednesday, when dispatch called to say the chase was headed their way in I-94.  They jumped in their vehicles, inspector Gouin getting close enough to see inside the van.  "I did call out that there's five people in the van and I believe I indicated that there's a lot of movement in the van the whole time I was behind it," said Inspector Gouin.

Three of the state patrol officer's colleagues were stationed ahead of the vehicle, waiting with spike strips.

"The third time was actually the successful time, it deflated the left front tire," said Inspector Ocain.

And then they moved in for the arrest.  "I just yelled for them to come out with their hands up one at a time," recalled Inspector Ocain.

And these officers say, they couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.

(( "All suspects were taken into custody without any injuries," noted Inspector Gouin.  "You couldn't ask for it to go any better than that."

TODAY'S TMJ4 is still waiting for word on the charges they're facing.  The suspects are between 17-20-years-old.
