Man Found Guilty for Driving Car into Beaver Dam Middle School


A 22-year-old Beaver Dam man has been found guilty after driving his car into a school in Beaver Dam in August. Roy Cortez pleaded “No Contest” in Dodge County Court to one count of Fleeing/Eluding an Officer Causing Bodily Harm or Property Damage, and the court found him guilty on Monday.

Police were called to a home on Center Street in Beaver Dam on August 21st for a domestic disturbance call. After leaving the scene, Cortez was seen driving past the house while police were still on scene. An officer tried to stop Cortez, but he sped away – reaching speeds of 80 to 90 miles per hour – before crashing his car into an electrical transformer and an exterior wall of Beaver Dam Middle School. The school district said the crash caused half a million dollars in damage.

Cortez initially pleaded “Not Guilty” to the charge in October, but since changed his plea. He is due back in court for a sentencing hearing in February.
