   With the City of Green Lake Police traveling to a location frequented by the male party, the Green Lake County Highway Department, Green Lake Police spotted the individual driving a red three-quarter ton pick-up belonging to the Green Lake County Highway Department.  Green lake Police attempted to stop the male party when he struck a dump truck and then rammed the City of Green Lake Police squad.  The truck left the Green Lake County Highway shop traveling west on Hill St. when the City of Green Lake squad repositioned to the front of the Highway truck.  The suspect then rammed the squad from the rear, now pushing the squad westbond.  With the squad and truck separating, the suspect continued west and became stuck at the end of Hill St.  Green Lake City Police then disabled the County Highway truck and took the suspect into custody.

   Major damage is associated to the incident of which the Wisconsin State Patrol is writing the vehicle crash incidents and the Green Lake County Sheriff's Office will be referring charges to include operate without owners consent and others.  This investigation is still in progress.

   No injuries were reported as a result of this incident and the male subject involved is being evaluated currently.
