-A man arrested after a high speed chase in Black River Falls appeared in Jackson County Court on Wednesday.

Back in May, deputies of the Jackson County Sheriff’s along with the Black River Falls Police Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol were involved in a vehicle pursuit in the City of Black River Falls with a vehicle that was reported stolen. The stolen vehicle had been involved in two vehicle pursuits in Eau Claire County prior to being located in the City of Black River Falls. The vehicle crashed near N. 8th Street in the City of Black River Falls and the driver, 21-year-old Quentin Labansky from Reedsburg, fled on foot. Labansky then entered an apartment complex where he fired several shots. Law enforcement engaged Labansky in gunfire but Labansky fled. Labansky then attempted to gain entry into several residences and vehicles before stealing a bicycle and attempting to elude law enforcement. Labansky then entered an occupied residence and threatened the occupants with a firearm.

Labansky was confronted by law enforcement again where a second exchange of gunfire occurred. Labansky was eventually taken into custody by law enforcement and remains in the Jackson County Jail. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation. Labansky is being charged with two counts of burglary-armed with a dangerous weapon, robbery with threat of force, three counts of bail jumping, 1st degree recklessly endangering safety, resisting or obstructing an officer, operating while revoked and vehicle operator flee/elude an officer. Probable cause was found during his preliminary hearing so his court proceedings will continue. He entered a not guilty plea to the charges against him.
