Barron County authorities have rescheduled a plea hearing for a former Waupun police officer who went on a crime spree a year ago this month. Forty-four-year-old Bradley Young of Brandon was originally scheduled to have the plea hearing this past Friday; instead it’s been scheduled for September 23rd. He’s facing vehicle theft and fleeing an officer charges in that County. Young is also facing charges in Burnett and Green Lake County for the spree that began with the attempted break-in of a Green Lake restaurant and vehicle theft.
