Jury Finds Milwaukee Man Guilty In Multi-Agency Pursuit In Dodge County

(Dodge County) A jury took around two hours Thursday to convict a Milwaukee man who was part of a multi-agency pursuit in Dodge County last year. Justin Carter-Smith was found guilty on two felony counts of Fleeing. He was found not guilty on a third count. It started at 2pm on November 5th when the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office received a report from the Columbus Police Department of a theft that occurred in the city. The suspected vehicle was later located around 2:24pm in the City of Beaver Dam and police attempted a traffic stop on Highway 151 near Industrial Drive. The vehicle fled into the city and officers as well as sheriff’s deputies followed. Due to the speed of the vehicle the chase was terminated. About twenty minutes later, Fox Lake police spotted the car entering the city and began a pursuit, which also ended due to speed. The vehicle fled to Highway 68 towards Waupun where it was located by police, beginning another chase. While attempting to turn east on Jefferson Street, the vehicle struck a curb which disabled it. The driver, who was identified as Carter-Smith, fled on foot but was taken into custody several blocks away. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and the 33-year-old will be back in court on December 20th.
