BD Man Accused of Sparking High Speed Chase

6/7/11 – A Beaver Dam man faces felony charges for allegedly running from authorities at a high rate of speed before crashing his vehicle. Anthony Sanders was arrested on Saturday in the town of Herman after authorities say they clocked him driving 30 miles over the speed limit on Highway 67. The subsequent pursuit allegedly reached speeds in excess of 90 miles per hour down Highway 67 before Sanders lost control on Madison Road and put the car in a ditch. If convicted, the charge carries a maximum prison sentence of three-and-a-half years in prison. Sanders had a signature bond set at $2500 yesterday and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for next month.
