Waupun Man Who Dragged Sheriffs Lieutenant Charged

Bond has been set at $10,000 cash for the Waupun man who dragged a Dodge County Sheriff’s lieutenant while trying to get away from him with his vehicle. Matthew Ellcey made his initial appearance Thursday in Dodge County Court on obstruction and fleeing charges. Sheriff Dale Schmidt says after a traffic stop the lieutenant reached in the vehicle to try and stop Ellcey who was slowly putting his vehicle into gear on Highway 49. Later the officer was treated at Waupun Memorial Hospital and released. Ellcey headed to Waupun where he crashed his vehicle and took off on foot before being caught. A preliminary hearing is scheduled next Thursday.
