Escaped inmate recaptured in Trempealeau County

by

WHITEHALL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Trempealeau County authorities spent the early part of the weekend catching an escaped inmate.

31-year-old Michael Leavitt jumped from a second story window at the Trempealeau County Health Care Center west of Whitehall. Leavitt then made his way into town, where he stole a car left running in the Kwik Trip parking lot. From there, Leavitt led deputies on a slow speed chase on Highway 53. They were able to stop him south of Blair.

Leavitt was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of a minor injury, and then taken back to the health care center without incident.
