LYNDON STATION, Wis. (AP) — A Baraboo woman is accused of her third drunken driving offense and this time sheriff’s officials say she was behind the wheel of a stolen squad car.
The Juneau County Sheriff’s Department says a deputy and a state trooper were dealing with an intoxicated man and woman at a BP gas station in Lyndon Station Saturday about 4 a.m. The woman left the convenience store and when the deputy looked outside he saw his patrol squad was missing. A witness told the deputy the woman had gotten into the squad car and was heading east on Interstate 90/94.
The deputy and trooper jumped in the trooper’s car, caught up with the stolen squad and pulled it over. The 29-year-old woman was arrested and taken to the Juneau County Jail.
