A Florida Man Arrested Following Pursuit In FDL County

One person was arrested as a result of a high-speed pursuit Monday night in Fond du Lac County.

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department attempted a stop Monday just before midnight, on a vehicle that had been speeding in the northbound lane of I-41, near Cty. Rd. F, in the Town of Byron.

Rather than pull over, the vehicle instead increased its speed.

A pursuit ensued, but was terminated after 1.6 miles.

Moments later, the suspect vehicle was spotted by another Sheriff’s Deputy as it exited from Hwy 41 onto Hickory St. The vehicle pulled into a gas station on Hickory St. at Hwy 41., where Deputies were able to make contact with the driver and took him into custody without incident. The driver was identified as a 59 year-old male from Florida, and he was arrested for Knowingly Fleeing an Officer.

No injuries or property damage resulted from the pursuit.

The Wisconsin State Patrol assisted with the pursuit.
