Menominee Falls Man Sentenced For Attacking State Trooper

12/2/17 – A Menominee Falls man was sentenced to 20 months in prison for attacking a state patrol trooper. Zachery Jach entered a no contest plea yesterday to felony Resisting an Officer Resulting in Boldly Harm, two other felony counts and one misdemeanor charge was dismissed but read into the record. The trooper was working a Click-it campaign near the Town of Hubbard in June when he noticed Jach passing a vehicle at excessive speeds. He clocked Jach going 86-miles-per-hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone. The 21-year-old eventually stopped his car in the traffic lane on County Highways S at TW, then put the vehicle in reverse, crashed into the trooper’s squad car, exited and became aggressive. The squad sustained over $4,500 dollars in damages. That’s when two passerby’s stopped to assist the trooper. A Hustisford man blocked the vehicle from leaving then he and another bystander wrestled with the suspect. In speaking with investigators, Jach said he had become suicidal over the past few months and wanted a cop to end it. He also admitted to being under the influence of alcohol and marijuana and warrant was issued and a mandatory blood draw was taken. When released, Jach will be placed under extended supervision for 36 months.
