Neenah Man Charged With Fleeing Lomira Police

(Lomira) A Neenah man was charged with running from Lomira police. Jason Beaudoin is facing two felony counts of Fleeing and Possession of a Firearm by a Felon. On the evening of July 2nd, a Lomira police officer spotted a motorcycle head southbound on the 1-41 on ramp, then stop and turnaround to go northbound up the ramp. The cop activated his emergency lights but the bike accelerated away at speeds in excess of 100-miles-per-hour. As the pursuit continued, the motorcycle failed to stop at several stop signs throughout the village. The chase ended when the bike crashed into the guardrail on Industrial Drive. Beaudoin was allegedly identified as the driver and, according to the criminal complaint, had a suspended license. Beaudoin reportedly said he ran because he was running out of gas and did not see police behind him. Authorities searched Beaudoin and reportedly located a handgun which he could not own due to a 2012 conviction of Armed Burglary in Sheboygan County. If convicted, the 32-year-old faces 13-and-a-half-years in prison. An initial appearance is scheduled for August 16th.
