Arrest Made In FDL Hit and Run
On April 29, 2014 the Fond du Lac Police Department arrested a 28 year old man from Waupun for the hit and run accident at Countryside Village Apartments located at 874 Security Dr . The arrest was made based upon a tip, and good investigative work from Officers Ben Colwin, Brian Bednarek and Detective Lee Mikulec. Holiday Dodge was also instrumental in helping to determine the year, make and model of the vehicle based on debris left at the scene.
The driver admitted to investigators that a floor mat apparently got caught up under the brake pedal as he was backing up and he was not able to stop which caused him to strike the building. The suspect driver then fled the scene returning to the Waupun area.
Charges of Hit and Run and Failure to report an accident are being forwarded to the DA’s office against Tom Benedict of Waupun.
