Police were called off a high speed car chase near campus Monday afternoon after officers decided speeds were too dangerous to continue.
University of Wisconsin Madison police tweeted they were involved in the vehicle pursuit which began on campus.
University of Wisconsin police spokesperson Marc Lovicott said the chase ended shortly after 4 p.m. due to the dangerously high speeds of the driver and police involved.
UWPD also tweeted the chase ended on the west side of Madison, on Raymond Road.
Lovicott said the pursuit was actually a Madison police case, but UW police provided assistance because they were conveniently close to the area.
