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.
