(Dodge County) A Milwaukee man who was part of a multi-agency pursuit in Dodge County last year was sentenced Monday to over four years in prison. In October, a jury found Justin Carter-Smith 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.
The 33-year-old was also placed on extended supervision for four years.
