Waupun Woman Placed On Probation For Fleeing Police

The 62-year-old McFarland woman who led Waupun Police on a chase while she was under the influence of cold medicines has reached a plea agreement with Dodge County prosecutors.  Kathryn Brown pled guilty to a reduced charge of failing to stop. She was placed on probation for a year. Officers tried to pull her over in March for driving ten miles above the speed limit, but she kept driving. She allegedly reached speeds of up to 70-miles-per-hour before spike stripes were deployed near Brownsville. Authorities found 18 empty bottles of Robitussin cough medicine in her vehicle that had all been purchased over a three week period.
