(Beaver Dam) A Horicon man was sentenced to 90 days in jail with work release privileges for speeding away from Beaver Dam police. Dayne Cronce plead guilty to two reduced misdemeanor charges of Failing to Stop and Resisting an Officer. Last May, authorities fielded a harassment complaint from a resident who said Cronce was following them in a black SUV. While on patrol, an officer noticed the suspect’s vehicle and activated his emergency lights. The 19-year-old then sped off at a high rate of speed. The officer observed Cronce travel through several stop signs at speeds near 80-to-100-miles-per-hour before ending the chase. Cronce turned himself in the next day. He told investigators that he had “a beef” with the individual who made the complaint and “got scared” when he saw the police. Cronce also told officers he was drinking prior to the incident. A preliminary-breath-test was taken which resulted in a blood alcohol level that was .06. In addition to jail time, Cronce will be placed on probation for one year.
