Man Arrested for High Speed Chase Near Tomah Sentenced in Monroe County Court

Tuesday, February 20th, 2024 -- 2:00 PM


A man arrested for a high speed chase near Tomah back in 2022 was sentenced in Monroe County Court.

According to law enforcement, on March 19th of 2022, the Monroe County 911 Communications Center was informed of a black Chevy Equinox traveling without headlights that was being operated by a possible impaired driver entering Monroe County from La Crosse County.

The La Crosse County Sheriff’s Office advised they had charges for the driver after he had fled from them earlier in the night. A Cashton Police Officer located the vehicle traveling northbound on State Highway 27 at approximately 9:55pm.

The suspect fled from the Officer near the Village of Melvina and traveled at speeds over 110 miles per hour. Monroe County Deputies successfully deployed tire deflation spikes in the Village of Leon.

The suspect continued to flee from Law Enforcement and eventually stopped near Icon Avenue on State Highway 27 after striking a guardrail. The suspect was detained and identified as Chad Raymond Weaver. The pursuit lasted less than four minutes.

The Wisconsin State Patrol and Sparta Police Department also assisted with the pursuit. The Sparta Area Fire Department and Sparta Area Ambulance Service responded to the scene of the crash. No injuries were reported.

Chad Weaver was booked into the Monroe County Jail. Weaver was found guilty of, due to a no contest plea, 6th OWI and vehicle operator fleeing/eluding an officer.

Two other charges were dismissed, but read in and four charges were dismissed on the prosecutor’s motion. He was sentenced to 2 years in state prison and 3 years of extended supervision.
