Milwaukee Man in Custody after FDL High Speed Chase

A 23 year old man from Milwaukee is in custody after he led Fond du Lac Police on a high speed chase
through a portion of the city Wednesday afternoon. Authorities say they pulled
over the man for a reckless driving violation near 4th and Main
streets when he fled the scene. The suspect lost control of his vehicle in the
area of 8th and Lloyd Streets where he struck two parked vehicles
and then the front porches of two separate houses. The car then came to rest in
the driveway of a home on 8th
Street
near Star Street. The suspect fled on foot but
was taken into custody after a short chase. He is being held in the Fond du Lac
County Jail on a probation hold and faces charges of eluding police, operating
a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent, possession of drug paraphernalia,
reckless driving, and suspected operation of a motor vehicle under the
influence of drugs or alcohol. The suspect sustained a minor injury from the crash.
No police officers were injured. The incident was first reported around 4pm.
