A deputy reports reaching speeds up to 110 mph while pursuing a car from Symco to Manawa.
The driver of the car, Jonathon R. Martzahl, 27, De Pere, now faces a felony charge of fleeing an officer.
At 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 19, a woman called 911 and reported that she was behind a black four-door car that was swerving all over the road.
She said she was westbound on State Highway 76 heading toward Bear Creek. She later reported that the car she was following almost sideswiped a parked vehicle. Then she told the 911 dispatcher that a passenger had climbed out the side window and was perched on the door while the car was traveling 70-75 mph.
The car continued west on State Highway 22 toward Symco.
Deputy Cameron Durrant was near the intersection of State Highway 161 and 22 when he spotted the car coming around the curve on State 22. He reported that the car accelerated as he began following it. Durrant reached 110 mph and the vehicle was still pulling away, according to the criminal complaint.
The car was headed south on State 22/110 when it attempted to turn west on Fuhs Road and lost control. The car took out a stop sign and several other signs before crashing into a ditch.
Durrant reported finding open beer cans on the floor of the car, an empty case of beer in the back seat and a bottle of Midnight Moonshine in an open cooler.
Both the driver, identified as Martzahl, and the passenger appeared intoxicated, the complaint says.
Martzahl was convicted of felony possession of marijuana and disorderly conduct in February 2013 in Outagamie County.
