EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- What started out as an erratic driver call for police in western Wisconsin has turned into a death investigation.

The Chippewa Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1q75uXk ) police arrested 60-year-old man at his Eau Claire home after a high speed chase Friday that started in Bloomer.

Officers talked to neighbors who heard a loud sound that evening and that an adult woman also lived in the residence. Police later found a woman dead in the home.

A forensic autopsy is being performed to discover the cause and manner of the woman's death.

Eau Claire Police community relations officer, Kyle Roder, couldn't say if the woman was the man's wife.

The man was cited for drunken driving and arrested for endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon and being armed while intoxicated.
