MUSKEGO, Wis. —

While putting a man in handcuffs, a Muskego police officer could not help but audibly share his disbelief with officers what had unfolded minutes earlier.

“Did he steal a parking (enforcement) Jeep?” the officer questioned.

“Yes,” at least two other officers said in unison.

“What the (expletive)?!” the questioning officer quipped.

The exchange was captured on the officer’s body camera video after a chase that ended in a crash Sept. 4 at the intersection of Moorland and Janesville Roads in Muskego.

The video, along with dashboard camera footage — obtained by WISN 12 through an open records request — provided insight into a bizarre series of crimes that Saturday afternoon.

Surveillance cameras near North 17th and West Wells streets in Milwaukee showed the man jumping into the City of Milwaukee parking enforcement jeep and taking off.

One of the dashboard camera videos provided by Muskego police showed a cruiser waiting as the stolen Jeep came into view, heading south on Moorland Road and crossing the city line from New Berlin to Muskego.

Suddenly, the flashing lights on the pursuing police vehicles go dark and their sirens go silent in the new jurisdiction.

None of the videos provided by Muskego police show the vantagepoint of the officer who was immediately behind the stolen vehicle, suggesting the convoy of police vehicles which turned off its lights and sirens were from New Berlin.

Less than a mile away at the Jetz Convenience Center, a Muskego officer had been waiting decided to engage the Jeep.

“I’m making contact,” the male officer announces over the police radio.

Seconds after the statement, there’s a collision between the two vehicles and the stolen Jeep continues to flee.

“He hit my squad. He hit my squad,” the officer repeats to his colleagues, announcing the Jeep’s direction of travel. “Going north on Mooreland. North on Mooreland.”

Nearing the intersection, the stolen Jeep slams on its brakes, nearly slamming into a car stopped at the red light.

As the officer’s squad car goes past the stopped vehicle on the left, the stolen Jeep comes in from the right and slams into the squad vehicle.

The body of the Jeep swings across the screen from left to right.

As the Jeep spins its wheels, the officer yells for the driver to surrender: “Don’t move! Show me your hands! Show me your hands! Do it now!”

Seconds later, fellow officers arrive, boxing the Jeep in as officers take formation with their guns pulled and pointed at the stolen Jeep.

Eventually, a hand emerges upward from the passenger door. Then, the person.

As the man’s hands go down from a raised position, the officers shout for him to keep his hands where they can be seen.

“Don’t reach for anything! Don’t reach for anything,” they yell.

Slowly, the man turns around with his back to the officers, lowers himself to the ground and puts both hands behind his back.

The officers methodically move in to make the arrest when one officer questions what he had just witnessed.

Police eventually identified the driver as Kordell Grady, who was three weeks shy of his 25th birthday when the crime occurred.

In Milwaukee County Circuit Court, Grady, pleaded no contest to taking a vehicle without consent, fleeing police and recklessly endangering safety.

On March 10, Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Paul Bugenhagen, Jr. sentenced Grady to 3 years behind bars with another 3 years of extended supervision.

No one was injured in the altercation.
