Chilton Man In Custody after High Speed Chase


A 39-year-old man from Chilton was arrested after a high speed chase that ended in the City of Fond du Lac. A Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Deputy first tried to stop the vehicle in the Town of Calumet for traveling 98 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. The driver failed to stop – and continued south on Highway 151, where he eventually slowed to near highway speeds. Deputies tried to use tire deflation devices near the intersection with County Highway K, but were unsuccessful and the driver continued into the City of Fond du Lac on Johnson Street. The driver was eventually stopped by a “moving roadblock” technique on Johnson Street by a group of sheriff’s deputies and City of Fond du Lac Police Officers. The roadblock was performed as speeds reached below 30 miles per hour.

As the vehicle was stopped, officers discovered four children all under the age of 14 years old were also in the car during the pursuit. The driver was taken into custody on charges of Felony Fleeing an Officer, and will also face further criminal charges for Operating While Intoxicated with minor passengers present and numerous traffic citations. The pursuit spanned nearly eight miles. No injuries to officers or civilians or property damage were reported.
