Randolph Man Given Jail Time For High-Speed Chase

(Randolph) A Randolph man was sentenced to 45 days in jail with work release privileges Friday for sparking a high-speed chase in Dodge County. Dawson Schulz pled guilty to a felony count of Attempting to Flee or Elude an Officer for the incident on June 15 of last year. Beaver Dam Police observed the 19-year-old on Highway 151 driving at speeds in excess of 95-miles-per-hour. During the pursuit that followed, the officer noted that his squad was traveling at 124-miles-per-hour, was unable to gain any distance on the subject and was simply following a black exhaust trail of smoke. The officer lost the suspect after a 7.8-mile pursuit but retraced his steps and located the suspects pick-up parked in a driveway. Dawson initially denied being in Beaver Dam but later admitted that he was the driver. He is quoted as saying that he only had two points left before his license was suspended and got scared when he saw sirens. In addition to jail, Schulz was placed on probation for two-and-a-half-years.
