Eugene Frederick Wunschel Jr., 41, of Lake View, was charged by Sac County sheriff's deputies following a pursuit that happened on Friday night, January 25.
A deputy on patrol attempted to stop a black 2016 Chevy Trailblazer for expired license plates shortly after 11 p.m. on 340th Street west of Wall Lake. The driver failed to stop and reached speeds over 90 miles per hour, the Sac County Sheriff's Office said. The deputy’s patrol car became disabled and the suspect vehicle was lost.
The following evening, deputies went to the registered owner's home located in Lake View. Deputies made contact with Eugene Wunschel who admitted to deputies that he was the driver and that he was scared because he did not have a license and that is why he did not stop. Deputies arrested Wunschel and charged him with eluding and driving while barred.
All person are presumed innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.
