Jefferson County Man Faces OWI Charge after Adams County Chase

According to an Adams County Sheriff’s Office press release, 32 year old Daniel P. Rechlin from Jefferson is facing charges of OWI and Vehicle Operator Flee/Elude Officer for an incident that happened on November 6 at about 2:15 a.m. Before the incident occurred, an Adams County Deputy was northbound on 11th Ave. approaching a stop sign at Czech Ave. in the Town of Preston. Rechlin was driving a black SUV and approached the deputy from the south at a high rate of speed. The deputy stopped at the stop sign and as the deputy proceeded, the black SUV went through the intersection without stopping for the stop sign and passed the deputy on the left at about 25-30 miles per hour. The deputy activated emergency lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle accelerated away reaching speeds of almost 90 miles per hour. Then the vehicle went through the stop sign at Cypress Ave. and west eastbound, then turning northbound on 10th Ave and continued at speeds of about 95 miles per hour. The vehicle went through the stop sign at State Highway 21 at about 80 miles per hour. The vehicle eventually struck an oak tree near State Highway 13, which caused significant damage. Deputies on scene rendered medical aid for the single occupant until an ambulance arrived on scene. Rechlin was transported via helicopter to the hospital for his injuries. The accident is being investigated by the Wisconsin State Patrol.
