Authorities say a car that was briefly chased by police in western Michigan ended up in a backyard swimming pool. Two people were taken into custody shortly after the car plunged into the water in Wednesday night in Muskegon Township.

There were no immediate reports of injuries. Crews used a wrecker to lift the car from the water. The chase and crash are under investigation.
