Incident Date

S. Stoughton Rd.


Patrick M. Dolan, age 43, Sun Prairie
Mr. Dolan was arrested for Hit-and-Run Operating While Intoxicated - 3rd offense, Following Too Closely, Open Intoxicants, Improper Registration.


Female, age 44, Fort Atkinson


Concerned citizens followed an intoxicated hit-and-run driver for several miles Thursday afternoon, while keeping police apprised of the suspect's location. He eventually pulled over on Sprecher Rd., just south of Wyalusing Dr., and was found passed out behind the wheel by a MPD police captain, who was the first law enforcement officer on the scene.

The collision took place at the intersection of S. Stoughton Rd. and Pflaum Rd. when the suspect's SUV rear ended the car of a Fort Atkinson woman.

On trailing witness, a 34-year old Madison woman, said the fleeing suspect was weaving from traffic lanes onto gravel shoulders. He also stopped in the middle of Buckeye Rd. for no apparent reason, and nearly collided head-on with two approaching vehicles when he turned from Buckeye Rd. onto northbound Sprecher Rd., according to the witness.

The suspect blew a .374 at the Dane County Jail, nearly 2 1/2 hours after driving away from the crash scene.
