Multi-County High-Speed Chase Ends In Lomira With Suspect Tazed

(Lomira) A multi-county, high-speed chase early Sunday morning ended near Lomira with the suspect taken in custody with a stun gun. The Fond du Lac County sheriff’s office was notified by a neighboring jurisdiction around 4:40am that a domestic violence suspect with a warrant for his arrest was driving 100-miles-per-hour in a stolen vehicle.

The Green Bay man was spotted twenty minutes later speeding in the southbound lanes on Interstate 41 at Lost Arrow Road in the Town of Byron. A traffic stop was attempted but the suspect fled, reaching speeds in excess of 115-miles-per-hour. The vehicle exited the interstate at Highway 49, driving township roads before continuing southbound on Highway 67. That’s where Fond du Lac County deputies were waiting with a tire deflation device in the village of Lomira.

The 28-year-old driver and sole occupant then fled on foot. When deputies caught up with him, they say he resisted arrest, so they subdued him with an electronic control device. The suspect’s finger was reportedly injured; he was treated and released from the hospital. Citations were issued for Operating While Intoxicated, Operating After Revocation, Failure to Stop at a Stop Sign and Speeding. He is being held on charges of Eluding and Obstructing an Officer.
