Four Months For Drunken High Speed Chase

8/5/11 – A Waupun man who ran from police has been sentenced to four months in jail. Nickey Duer pleaded “no contest” to a felony charge of Fleeing and misdemeanor Resisting an Officer and had two other charges dismissed but read into the record. Authorities say the 39-year-old confronted them in a parking lot on Main Street and was clearly inebriated. He told them to (quote) “go out there and arrest those drunk drivers.” They received word a short time later that he drove to a gas station. Officers then observed him squeal his tires and take off at a high rate of speed with his headlights off and a break light out. That sparked a chase with Duer driving 60 miles-an-hour down several side streets, blowing several stop signs. In addition to four months in jail, Duer had his license revoked for six months and was placed on probation for two years.
