Reeseville Man Gets Probation For Police Chase

(Beaver Dam) A Reeseville man was placed on probation for three years Tuesday for fleeing from law enforcement in April. Twenty-five-year-old Matthew Hansen entered a no contest plea to one felony count of Fleeing or Eluding a Traffic Officer. While a Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy was attempting a traffic stop southbound of County Road G in the town of Lowell during the early morning hours, he noticed a second vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. The deputy began following the vehicle and tracked its speeds ranging from 90 to 116-miles-per-hour. The pursuit continued into the Fall River area and was later called off after the deputy lost sight of the suspect. Authorities traced the vehicles license plate to Hansen who was identified as the driver through two other passengers who were in the car at the time.
