W. Beltline & Seminole Hwy (Frontage Road)


John G. Mosgnaller, 28 YOA, Belleville WI
Charges: Eluding Police x2
Reckless Driving


An on-duty MPD Supervisor was traveling eastbound on the W. Beltline Hwy near Seminole Hwy when he observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on the south frontage road. 

The Sergeant exited the beltline onto Todd Dr. and attempted to affect a traffic stop.  The vehicle refused to stop, traveling back onto the eastbound beltline and exiting Rimrock Rd. The incident continued south on Rimrock and eventually concluded  on Hwy MM @ Lacy Rd in Fitchburg when the driver finally stopped.  

The driver (Mosgnaller),offered several excuses for not stopping, none of which were proven true. During the course of the stop, Troopers from the Wisconsin State Patrol arrived at the scene and advised they too were in a pursuit with the same vehicle minutes before MPD and had terminated it at CTH PD/Seminole Hwy. Mosgnaller was additionally charged by Wisconsin State Patrol.
