Appleton Man Arrested for Friday Night Pursuit on I-41


A 21-year-old Appleton man is being held in the Fond du Lac County Jail on multiple charges after leading Sheriff’s Deputies on a high speed chase on Interstate 41 Friday night. The Sheriff’s Office says the man was taken into custody Monday night around 9:50 pm with assistance from the Appleton Police Department.

A deputy had pulled over a vehicle around 8:40 pm Friday on I-41 near County Highway F in the Town of Byron for an unsafe lane change and because the registered owner of the vehicle had a suspended license. As the deputy was attempting to identify the driver, who had given three names that did not come back on file, the driver sped away from the scene in the car. The pursuit went south on I-41 to Highway 49, then back north on the interstate to Highway 26 near Oshkosh, where it was terminated as the deputy had obtained the correct registration information matching the vehicle. The 29-mile chase reached speeds of 107 miles per hour, no injuries or damage were reported.
