When Shorewood High School track coach Dominic Newman saw a squad car following him on North Lake Drive early Monday morning as he was dropping off some people after the state track meet, he thought nothing of it.

They ordered him out of the car, handcuffed him and told him he was being arrested for grand theft auto, he said. Newman said he was scared when the incident…
