Muskego Man Arraigned For Dodge County Chase

5/4/17 – A Muskego man, accused of speeding away from a Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy, had an arraignment hearing yesterday. Cody Williams entered a plea of not guilty to felony Attempted Fleeing or Eluding a Traffic Officer and misdemeanor Obstruction. According to the criminal complaint, the 25-year-old was clocked driving over the speed limit on County Trunk CW in the Town of Lebanon in February. The deputy reportedly tried to catch up to the suspect vehicle but the motorist fled at speeds in excess of 100mph and the pursuit was called off due to icy road conditions. A short time later, the deputy found the suspect vehicle in a riverside parking lot. An intoxicated woman was found vomiting nearby. The deputy questioned her and she allegedly changed her story more than once resulting in her arrest for misdemeanor Obstruction. She said Williams was the driver and she met him in a bar that same night. Williams fled the scene but turned himself into Dodge County authorities the next day. He reportedly admitted to speeding saying he was on probation and not allowed to drink. Williams also said that he saw the squad car but not the lights because his windows were tinted. If convicted, Williams faces over four years in prison.
