Randolph Man Sentenced For Drunk Driving Police Chase In Dump Truck

(Westford) A Randolph man who led authorities on a drunk driving police chase in a dump truck was sentenced yesterday to three years in prison. Theodore Tamminga pled no contest to felony Fleeing and Fifth Offense OWI and a third felony and a handful of misdemeanors were dismissed but read into the record. Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a domestic incident involving Tamminga and a family member in the Town of Westford in March. The 35-year-old left the scene in the dump truck, refusing to stop for the deputy and sparking a pursuit. At one point, the dump truck dropped a substantial amount of gravel and dirt on Highway G in front of the squad car. The deputy was able to navigate through the debris which covered both lanes of traffic for approximately 50 yards. He was eventually taken into custody after driving the dump truck into a field and getting stuck. In addition to three years in prison, Tamminga was sentenced to three years of extended supervision.
