Randolph Man Appears On Felony Fleeing Charges

(Randolph) A Randolph man is accused of sparking a high-speed chase in Dodge County. Dawson Schulz is charged with one felony count of Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer for the incident on June 15. Beaver Dam Police allegedly observed the 19-year-old on Highway 151 driving at speeds in excess of 95-miles-per-hour. During the pursuit that followed, the officer noted that his squad was traveling at 124-miles-per-hour, was unable to gain any distance on the subject and was simply following a black exhaust trail of smoke. The officer lost the suspect after a 7.8-mile pursuit put retraced his steps and located the suspect pick-up parked in a driveway. Dawson initially denied being in Beaver Dam but later reportedly admitted that he was the driver. He is quoted as saying that he only had two points left before his license was suspended and got scared when he saw sirens. If convicted, the charge carries a maximum three-and-a-half-year sentence. A signature bond was set at $1000 during an initial appearance this week and Dawson is expected to be back in court for an arraignment hearing next month.
