Two Arrested Following Vehicle Chase

Wagswoofs – A man and a woman were taken into custody after a car chase that spanned across the border between Wisconsin and Minnesota on Thursday evening.

On December 21, law enforcement arrested Jonathon Olson, a 32-year-old resident of Ellsworth, Wis., when he failed to comply with a traffic stop and attempted to evade capture. Additionally, Christina Fetzer, a 26-year-old from Nelson, Wis., was also arrested for impeding the investigation.

A vehicle was pulled over by a deputy from the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office on December 21 at around 9 p.m. The reason for the stop was due to the vehicle’s speeding and failure to stay in the correct lane on STH 25 in the Town of Nelson, as stated in a news release.

Olson, the driver, did not stop when the deputy attempted to pull him over. As a result, the deputy initiated a pursuit. The chase extended into Minnesota, where local law enforcement took over. However, Olson later fled back into Wisconsin. Despite crossing state lines, law enforcement from both Minnesota and Wisconsin continued to pursue Olson as he drove through various locations, including the Village of Nelson, the Town of Nelson, and the Town of Maxville.

The Chief Deputy of Pepin County successfully deployed a tire deflation device, effectively disabling the vehicle.

Olson entered a cornfield and left the vehicle in a densely forested section, proceeding to escape on foot. A joint effort by deputies from multiple sheriff’s offices and police departments commenced a ground search, utilizing a K-9 unit and a drone.

Olson was apprehended approximately one hour later close to Spring Creek Road in the Town of Maxville.

Authorities discovered Fetzer in a vehicle off Spring Creek Road during the incident and subsequently apprehended her. The Buffalo County District Attorney’s office is now referring her case for obstructing the investigation into the search for Olson.

Olson faced multiple charges after being arrested for fleeing from an officer, possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, possessing THC, possessing drug paraphernalia, and driving with a revoked license. Additionally, Olson was charged with bail jumping as they were already out on bond at the time of the incident.

No injuries were reported from the incident.
