Fond Du Lac Man Found With 18 Grams Of Illegal Drugs After Pursuit With Police

(Fond du Lac) A Fond du Lac man was found with over 18 grams of illegal drugs after fleeing police Monday. The Fond du Lac Police Department attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle believed to be connected to a possible domestic disturbance around 3:30pm.

The vehicle failed to stop after officers activated their emergency lights and accelerated away. The pursuit reached speeds of roughly 33 miles-per-hour while law enforcement chased the vehicle through areas in the south-central portions of the city. The chase ended when the vehicle stopped in the 100 block of 3rd Street.

The driver fled on foot but officers quickly took him into custody. Authorities say the 29-year-old had 18.2 grams of fentanyl and marijuana on him. He was first transported to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment of minor injuries before being taken to the county jail.

The suspect is facing charges of Fleeing, Possession with Intent to Deliver Fentanyl, and Resisting.
