Fond du Lac Authorities Look For Speeding Motorcycle

6/22/17 – Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s officials are asking for the public’s help in identifying two individuals involved in a high-speed chase between a motorcycle and sheriff’s deputy on Interstate-41 last Thursday about 11:30pm. Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says a deputy was conducting radar operations when he clocked a motorcycle going 91 miles an hour near County Highway N.  When the motorcyclist increased speed the pursuit was cut off near the Fond du Lac/Winnebago County line. The last speed the deputy got on his radar for the bike was 123 miles per hour. Waldschmidt says because of the speed, time of night, and because there was a passenger on the back of the motorcycle the chase was cut short. Because the bike had a distinct look; a silver-colored Yamaha with white and blue auxiliary lighting around the engine and undercarriage, the deputy doubled back to see if the motorcycle had stopped for gas along I-41. Waldschmidt was able to locate a gas station where the bike had stopped and got video for still photos that were posted on the Sheriff’s Facebook page. The motorcycle also had a very loud exhaust and also has leather saddle bags and only one rear view mirror on the left side. Anyone who can identify the individuals is asked to call (920) 929-3390 or you can leave an anonymous tip at 906-4777.
