Another car chase with shots fired
Highway 14 was closed for several hours between Middleton and Cross Plains Thursday morning as police cleaned up a high speed chase that happened overnight.
Police say it began around 1:30 when a woman reported that an ex boyfriend was drunk and had violated a restraining order.
When police located the man, he took off in a van and collided with at least four squad cars before he was stopped.
Police say one officer actually fired a shot at the man’s van during the chase.
No one was injured.
I would just like to point out that if these people went to bed at a decent hour, last night’s car chase would not have happened. Write your legislators at tell them to support a bill mandating a decent bedtime.
Questions we want answered:
Was the man wearing his seatbelt?
Did he obey the speed limit?
Was he using 10% ethanol fuel?
Was his van a more fuel-efficient model, crash-test rated, and properly tested for emissions?
Was the van airbag equipped?
Did he brush his teeth and wash behind his ears?
Was there a “Garfield” attached to his window obstructing his field of vision?
Was he talking on a cell phone?
Was he adjusting his car stereo at the time of the crash?
And finally, his mom wants to know if he wore clean underwear.
