Charges Filed Against Menominee Falls Man In Trooper Attack

6/30/17 – Cash bond was set at $10,000 dollars yesterday for a Menominee Falls man who attacked a state patrol trooper and was subdued by two witnesses. Zachery Jach is facing three felony counts of Resisting an Officer Resulting in Bodily Harm, Fleeing from an Officer, and Criminal Damage to Property over $2,500 dollars as well as one misdemeanor charge of Criminal Damage. On Tuesday the trooper was working a Click-it campaign near the Town of Hubbard when he noticed Jach passing a vehicle at excessive speeds. He clocked Jach going 86 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. The 21-year-old eventually stopped his car in the traffic lane on County Highways S at TW, then reportedly put the vehicle in reverse, crashed into the trooper’s squad car causing over $4,500 dollars in damages, exited and became aggressive. That’s when two passerby’s stopped to assist the trooper. Rick Rogowski of Hustisford blocked the vehicle from leaving then got out of his car and wrestled with the suspect. In speaking with investigators, Jach said he had reportedly become suicidal over the past few months and wanted a cop to end it. He also allegedly admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana so a warrant was issued and a mandatory blood draw was taken. If convicted, Jach faces over 13 years in prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 6th.
