Two People Charged In Chase, Standoff

Two people have been charged in the Fond du Lac County standoff that occurred last Tuesday. The 14-mile chase involved 34-year old Louis Stone of Merrill and 30-year old Paulina Meshigaud of Green Bay, and ended when the vehicle Stone was driving was forced into a ditch in Dodge County.

Stone was in possession of a large butcher knife, and at one point had removed his baby that was in a car seat in the rear of the vehicle, and held the baby in the front with him. Stone did surrender, and is currently receiving medical care. Charges were filed against the two including first degree recklessly endangering safety and eluding an officer.
