Bail jumping charges filed
A man out on bond for a seventh OWI is back in jail.
Jeremy J. Olson, 43, Neenah, is charged with three counts of felony bail jumping and one count of obstructing an officer.
On March 23, Olson was charged with his seventh drunken driving offense since 1994.
A state trooper arrested Olson on March 22 on U.S. Highway 10 in the town of Lind.
Due to his six prior convictions, Olson is restricted to less than .02 blood-alcohol content.
Waupaca County Circuit Court Judge Vicki Clussman set a $3,500 cash bond and Olson remained in custody for nearly four months.
On July 19, Olson was released from jail after his mother co-signed a $10,000 signature bond that had been amended by Judge Raymond Huber.
Conditions of the bond included that Olson not possess or consume alcohol, not operate a vehicle and abide by the Soberlink system, which allows jail staff to monitor a person’s alcohol consumption via the internet.
At 9:21 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7, Soberlink indicated that Olson had a .03 BAC. A jail sergeant attempted unsuccessfully to contact Olson.
At 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, Soberlink indicated that Olson had a .04 BAC. Again, Olson did not return calls or contact the jail, the complaint says.
On Aug. 11, Waupaca Police Officer Brent Wittman pulled Olson over for a traffic violation.
While Wittman was talking with him, Olson reportedly ran away.
Wittman pursued Olson on foot and arrested him.
Olson remains in custody on a $5,000 cash bond, ordered by Judge Troy Nielsen.
In addition to his criminal charges, Olson has also been cited for operating while suspended, operating without insurance and non-registration of a vehicle.
