Madison Man Accused Of Fleeing From Dodge County Deputies

(Calamus) A Madison man was charged Wednesday for running from Dodge County deputies. Timothy Pritchett is facing a felony count of Fleeing and a misdemeanor charge of Obstruction. During the early morning hours on June 14th, a sheriff’s deputy allegedly clocked Pritchett’s vehicle speeding through a construction zone near the Town of Calamus. A traffic stop was initiated and when the deputy made contact with Pritchett he reportedly noticed an odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle. According to the criminal complaint, Pritchett refused to get out the vehicle and said (quote) “I understand you can legally search my vehicle.” Pritchett then allegedly sped away and was driving in excess of 120-miles-per-hour during the pursuit that lasted five-and-a-half miles. A second deputy joined the chase that was eventually called off. If convicted, the 36-year-old faces over four years in prison. An initial appearance is scheduled for August 24th.
