Beaver Dam Man Given Jail Time For Threatening Law Enforcement

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man convicted of threatening law enforcement was sentenced to four months in jail Monday. In April, a jury found Marco Solis guilty on two felony counts of Threat to Law Enforcement. In October of 2019, a Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop for a burnt out headlight on Madison Street in Beaver Dam. The deputy noticed a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle and started a field sobriety test with the driver. A short time later Solis, who was an acquaintance with an occupant of the vehicle, walked up to the scene and became argumentative with the deputy. The deputy reported that Solis appeared to be heavily intoxicated and refused warnings to calm down. The 22-year-old was eventually arrested and made threats towards a Beaver Dam police officer while being escorted to the Dodge County jail. Solis was also placed on probation for two years.
