Columbus Man Facing Felony Charges For FDL County Pursuit

A pursuit that started in Dodge County and traveled into Fond du Lac County has resulted in a Columbus man charged with two felony counts of fleeing.

35-year old Jason McDonald is facing the felony counts for his role in the pursuit last month.

McDonald was spotted on Highway 151 by Columbus Police, who were assisting in locating the vehicle, supposedly being driven at the time by McDonald.

Pursuit speeds topped 100 mph, with McDonald exiting Dodge County and traveling into Fond du Lac County.

Sheriff’s Deputies said they needed to speed up to 120 mph just to keep up McDonald.

He is due back in court in late May, and if convicted, could face up to seven years in prison.
