Beaver Dam Man Facing Felony Fleeing Charges

(Beaver Dam) Cash bond was set at $5,000 Monday for a Beaver Dam man who was charged with hitting a squad car while attempting to run from police. Tamarie Jeffries is facing a felony count of Fleeing as well as misdemeanor charges of Hit and Run, Resisting an Officer, Battery and Disorderly Conduct. On Saturday, Beaver Dam police were called to an address on Wayland Street for a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, Jeffries was already inside a vehicle and allegedly struck a cop car as he tried to flee. According to the criminal complaint, Jeffries speed down North Spring Street at speeds ranging from 45-to-55-miles-per-hour. Jeffries eventually returned to the same address and was subdued by an electronic control device. As police took him into custody, Jeffries reportedly flailed his legs and physically strained against officers. If convicted, the 28-year-old faces over five-and-a-half-years in prison. A judge will decide next week if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
