Authorities in Monroe County say they were able to arrest a man driving a suspected stolen car, but only after a 45-minute standoff Saturday morning. 

The incident happened on Interstate 90 near Sparta.  The Monroe County Sheriff's Department was contacted by officials in Marquette County and asked to be on the lookout for a stolen vehicle.  When the traffic stop was made on I-90, the suspect reportedly fired a single shot at law enforcement officers.  He refused to surrender but was eventually taken into custody.
