Madison Man Sentenced For Speeding Away From Beaver Dam Police

(Beaver Dam) A Madison man will spend 30 days in jail with work release privileges for speeding away from Beaver Dam police while drunk. Al Rahman Goodwin pled guilty Monday to misdemeanor Operating While Intoxicated First Offense with a Passanger Under 16. Counts of felony Fleeing and misdemeanor Bail Jumping were dismissed but read into the record. A Beaver Dam officer clocked Goodwin going 13-miles-per-hour above the posted speed limit in October. When he attempted a routine traffic stop, Goodwin took off at a high rate speed. The officer reached speeds in excess of 100-miles-per-hour while pursuing the 20-year-old. The chase continued until Goodwin struck a parked van which caused the officer’s squad car to collide with the suspect’s vehicle. Goodwin fled on foot but was later apprehended and taken to Beaver Dam Community Hospital.  The officer says the suspects eyes were bloodshot, he smelled of a strong odor of intoxicants and he vomited on himself while in custody. In addition to jail time, Goodwin must blow into a tube for one year to start his car.
