Sussex Man Makes Initial Appearance In Court For High Speed Chase In Fond Du Lac And Dodge Counties

(Dodge County) The 27-year-old Sussex man involved in a high speed chase in Fond du Lac and Dodge counties Monday night made his initial appearance in Fond du Lac County court Thursday. Bond was set at $15,000 cash for Kevin O’Brien who is facing second degree recklessly endangering safety, fleeing an officer, and bail jumping charges. A deputy spotted the vehicle traveling in excess of 100-miles-per-hour on Interstate 41 near Highway 151 in the Town of Fond du Lac around 7:30pm. After 12 miles, the vehicle entered Dodge County and was disabled by a tire deflation device. There were no injuries reported but a vehicle that was not involved in the pursuit was unable to avoid the tire deflation devices and received tire damage. A preliminary hearing is scheduled next Thursday.
