Illinois Man Charged With Fleeing Beaver Dam Police

(Beaver Dam) Cash bond was set at $25,000 Thursday for an Illinois man charged following a high-speed chase with Beaver Dam police. Ali Barnaby from Mount Prospect is facing a felony count of Fleeing and a misdemeanor charge of Obstruction. Around 3:40pm Tuesday, an officer allegedly clocked Barnaby going 50-miles-per-hour on Industrial Drive and when police activated their emergency lights the vehicle accelerated away. According the criminal complaint, Barnaby failed to stop at several stop signs in the city and at one point was going nearly 80-miles-per-hour on North Spring Street. During the pursuit, law enforcement learned that the vehicle was listed as stolen out of Illinois. Barnaby reportedly reached speeds in excess of 95-miles-per-hour as he continued out of the city limits and onto County Highway W. The vehicle was eventually disabled by tire deflation devices set up by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office just east of High Point Road. A baton was used to smash the driver’s side window to unlock the door but Barnaby still allegedly refused to exit so officers cut his seatbelt and removed the 18-year-old. A female passenger was also removed from the vehicle and taken into custody. If convicted, Barnaby faces over four years in prison. A judge will decide next week if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
