Airport Chase Suspect Charged

Bond was set at $1,000 cash for the 56-year-old Manitowoc man who tried to use Wittman Regional Airport to get away from state troopers who were pursuing him. Lee Konop was charged in Winnebago County Court with fleeing an officer. He’s back in court Thursday and has a preliminary hearing next month. Konop was being pursued on I-41 when he went into the City of Oshkosh. He crashed through a gate at the airport, but his vehicle became disabled between two runways. The chase occurred Tuesday.
