Washington County Sheriff

Nov 1, 2016 – West Bend, WI – On Saturday afternoon, Oct. 29 at 3:27 p.m. a deputy was on routine patrol inside of Sandy Knoll County Park.  The deputy located a parked vehicle and determined the registered owner of the vehicle had two active warrants including a felony arrest warrant for fifth offense drunk driving.

Deputies made contact with the subject’s wife near the car who indicated the couple was going for a walk when the husband saw the squad car and fled on foot.  Deputies were unable to find the 39-year-old West Bend man.

Later that evening at 9:25 p.m., a resident in the 6400 block of Beck Lane called after hearing a man yelling for help.  Deputies located the subject in a marshy area, covered head to toe in mud and not wearing shoes.

The man was extremely cold and had suffered a hip injury.  The investigation revealed at some point the man had fallen, knocked himself unconscious, and in the process injured his hip.  He was medically cleared and brought to jail.
