Bauer Enters Into Plea Agreement

2/27/12 – A Beaver Dam teen who sparked a high speed chase with authorities last October has entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors. Brady Bauer pleaded “no contest” on Friday to a felony charge of Fleeing an Officer and misdemeanor Obstruction and had a pair of felony Bail Jumping charges and two other misdemeanors dismissed but read into the record.

Bauer was arrested in October after officers attempted a traffic stop for excessive window tinting but the suspect reportedly fled into the county. An eight-mile chase ensued down County Highway E that at times reached speeds in excess of 90mph. Brady was tracked down at an apartment complex in Burnett. The 18-year-old is charged with one felony count of Fleeing and Eluding an Officer and misdemeanor charges of Obstructing an Officer, Possession of an Illegally Obtained Prescription and Theft of Movable Property. Also found in the vehicle, a stolen county road sign for County Trunk BB which Bauer admitted to taking because it matched his initials. The teen was also ordered to perform community service and can petition to have the felony expunged from his record if he successfully completes probation.
