Lomira Man Gets Jail In Drunken Hit and Run

7/12/11 – A Lomira man will spend a year in jail for running another man off the road in a drunken rage. Shane Vis pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of OWI Causing Injury and Hit and Run and had a felony charge of Second Degree Reckless Endangerment and two other misdemeanors dismissed but read into the record. According to the criminal complaint, Vis confronted the victim in the parking lot of his girlfriend’s apartment and blocked his car from leaving. The victim maneuvered onto Main Street and Vis followed at a high rate of speed; 70mph in a 35 mile-an-hour zone. Vis rammed the victim’s vehicle from behind after a high-speed chase through Lomira and the victim spun-out into the ditch. Vis denied to authorities that he was chasing the victim but told arresting officers he was (quote) “pretty drunk” and said his reaction time “wasn’t the greatest.” In addition to a year behind bars, the 21-year-old was placed on probation for two years, had his license revoked for one year and was ordered to pay over $4000 in fines and court costs and another $1300 in restitution.
