Fond du Lac County Pursuit Ends In Arrest
A Kenosha County man was taken into custody following a chase Wednesday morning through Eden and Campbellsport.
A FDL County Sheriff’s Department deputy attempted a traffic stop shortly after 10:00 a.m. on a vehicle that was driving erratically on Hwy. 45 near Hwy. W in Eden.
In stead of stopping as instructed, the male driver of the Jeep SUV sped up while heading west on Hwy. F, reaching speeds of 80 mph.
The pursuit continued onto private property , through a farm field and eventually into Campbellsport, where additional patrol vehicles joined in.
The suspect vehicle avoided one set of spike strips and headed back towards Eden, where the suspect attempted to turn onto Hwy. K, but instead lost control and traveled into a ditch.
A Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to ram the suspect vehicle with a patrol squad, causing heavy damage to both vehicles but did not disable the suspect vehicle, which took again and eventually crashed on Hwy. K. The 21-year old male was transported to the hospital for minor injuries, and now faces numerous charges including Operating While Under the Influence.
The pursuit lasted 19 miles.
