Plano police arrested a Yorkville man and a Plano man after police say they led officers on a high-speed chase through the community Sunday evening.

Brian Hausler, 50, of the 300 block of East Washington Street, Yorkville, was charged with fleeing and eluding police, speeding, reckless driving, driving too fast for conditions and obstructing identification. Police said Hausler also was wanted on warrants issued in Kane and DeKalb counties.

James Kempiak, 21, of the 600 block of West Abe Street, Plano, was charged with driving under the influence and was cited for possession of cannabis, police said.

Plano police said they observed a vehicle traveling 90 mph in a 30 mph zone on Route 34 at 6:59 p.m., Sunday, May 12. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver did not stop, and continued at a high rate of speed through a residential area. Officers lost sight of the vehicle, but later located it in the 600 block of West Abe Street.

Police said they located two suspects near the vehicle and Kempiak told officers he had been in control of the vehicle at one point while under the influence of alcohol. Police said Hausler failed to properly identify himself to officers while being questioned, but later admitted to driving the vehicle at a high rate of speed when officers tried to stop the two.

The suspects were taken into custody and transported to the Kendall County Jail to await bond.
