Fond du Lac Woman Arrested In Brown County

A Fond du Lac woman wanted for a hit-and-run in Winnebago County was arrested after taking off from a traffic stop in Brown County. 25-year old Samantha LeMaster was in court Friday, following the traffic stop for speeding on I-41 Thursday. A pursuit ensued, but State Patrol troopers ended it once LeMaster left the interstate and made her way onto city streets. De Pere police found LeMaster’s car in the Festival Foods parking lot, and located her a short time later at another nearby business. If convicted of the felony for fleeing and eluding, LeMaster could face up to 3 ½ years in prison. Cash bond for LeMaster was set at $2,500, and she is due back in court February 5.
