Fond Du Lac Theft Suspect Arrested After Rollover Crash In Beaver Dam

(Beaver Dam) A Fond du Lac County suspect pursued by Beaver Dam police is facing numerous charges after rolling his vehicle near Highway 151 Wednesday. Beaver Dam officers were notified just before 2pm that a white cargo van driving by an individual wanted in connection to a theft in Fond du Lac was heading south on 151.

A short time later, police did locate a van fitting that description traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle accelerated after seeing the officer then exited at Highway 33. The van drove westbound into the city, went through a red light, and continued through the downtown.

The pursuit ended near Highway 151 and D just south of Beaver Dam when the vehicle went off the road and rolled several times. Authorities say the operator attempted to get out of the field he crashed into but was unable to because of the deep snow. He was eventually taken into custody with assistance from K-9 Boomer.

The driver was transported to the Beaver Dam hospital with minor injuries. He was then transported to the Dodge County Jail on several felony charges and numerous warrants.
