(Westford) A Randolph man accused of leading authorities on drunk driving police chase in a dump truck will head to trial. Theodore Tamminga has waived his right to a preliminary hearing to felony counts of Fleeing and Fifth Offense OWI as well as a misdemeanor charge of Operating with a Revoked License. Dodge County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a domestic incident reportedly involving Tamminga and a family member in the Town of Westford last week Wednesday evening. The 34-year-old allegedly 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. If convicted, Tamminga faces up to 14 years in prison. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for May 9.
