Jury Convicts Beaver Dam Man On Threats To Law Enforcement Charges

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man has been found guilty of threatening law enforcement. It took a jury a little over an hour to return a guilty verdict against Marco Solis on two felony counts of Threats to Law Enforcement. In October of 2019, a Dodge County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop for a burnt out headlight on Madison Street in Beaver Dam. The deputy noticed a strong odor of intoxicants coming from the vehicle and started a field sobriety test with the driver. A short time later Solis, who was an acquaintance with an occupant of the vehicle, walked up to the scene and became argumentative with the deputy. The deputy reported that Solis appeared to be heavily intoxicated and refused warnings to calm down. The 22-year-old was eventually arrested and made threats towards a Beaver Dam police officer while being escorted to the Dodge County jail. Solis faces over 12-years in prison. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Solis will be back in court on June 28.
