Police Pursuit Incident At about 2:00 a.m. this morning, Friday, September 15, 2017, several Kaukauna officers went into Combined Locks to assist Fox Valley Metro Police for a report of a man pointing a gun at people near Prospect St. and Kimberly Av. As Kaukauna officers were responding west on Prospect Av. they were told by officers on scene the suspect left the scene at a high rate of speed east on Prospect St. in a pick up truck. The truck passed the Kaukauna units on Prospect. Kaukauna pursued the truck east into Kaukauna on State St. A Kaukauna officer deployed a tire deflation device at State St. and CTH HH but the truck was able to avoid it. The pursuit continued east on 10th St. and south on Main Av and then east to Oakridge Av. where the driver abandoned his truck at the end of E. 17th St. and fled on foot after about a 3.5 mile pursuit. Outagamie County Sheriff deputies also were able to assist in the pursuit at this time. Two Kaukauna officers pursued the male on foot to the 400 block of E. 16th St. where a Taser was deployed which stopped the male. Officers were then able to gain control of the male and place handcuffs on him after a brief struggle. One Kaukauna officer sustained minor scrapes to his hands. The suspect, a 26-year-old male, also sustained some minor scrapes and cuts. No one else was injured and no property was damaged. A pellet pistol was found on the driver's seat and a pellet rifle was located in the back seat. The suspect was booked into jail on recommended charges of eluding, 4th offense operating while intoxicated, and resisting arrest. Other charges may be pending as a result of Fox Valley Metro's investigation as well. Thank you all for your support. We like to try to keep the public informed as to what is occurring in their city. If you have any questions or concerns please phone us at 920-766-6333. Thank you.
