Wis. man drives through car wash during pursuit

FOND DU LAC, Wis. — A driver did not make a clean getaway early Sunday, despite taking his vehicle through a car wash while fleeing an officer.

A reserve officer tried to stop the driver on suspicion of drunken driving, the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. But the motorist fled by driving through a car wash, then sped away and nearly struck a Fond du Lac police officer who had stopped to help.

A tire deflation device was eventually used to stop the car, and officers used a stun gun to take the 18-year-old driver into custody, the Sheriff’s Department said. An 18-year-old woman also in the car was arrested and released.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
