Juneau Man Charged With Running From Beaver Dam Police

(Beaver Dam) Cash bond was set at $10-thousand dollars Monday for a Juneau man who is accused of running from police. Ryan Wehrmann is facing felony counts of Fleeing or Eluding an Officer and Bail Jumping. On Monday, a Beaver Dam police officer heard a vehicle accelerating at a high rate of speed on Highway 151 just north of State Highway 33. As the car passed the officers location he allegedly clocked it going 99-miles-per-hour in a 65-mile-per-hour zone. As emergency lights were active, Wehrmann reportedly increased his speed and began to pass other motorists to get away. During the pursuit, the officer reached speeds in excess of 120-miles-per-hour. A tire deflation device was deployed just north of Highway 49 which destroyed the driver’s side tire and caused the vehicle to come to a complete stop. Wehrmann was arrested and allegedly admitted to consuming alcohol earlier that evening. The 21-year-old blew a zero-point-zero-four-five (0.045) during a preliminary-breath-test. If convicted, Wehrmann faces no more than nine-and-a-half years in prison. A judge will decide next week if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
