Bonduel man charged with fleeing after high-speed chase

A Bonduel man accused of leading authorities on a high-speed chase through three counties Saturday has been charged with a felony count of attempting to flee a officer.

Damonick S. Foral, 18, could face a maximum 3½ years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted. He also faces nearly a dozen fines and forfeitures for speeding and failing to yield at numerous stop signs.

According to the criminal complaint, a Shawano County sheriff’s deputy spotted Foral’s vehicle run through a stop sign at Warrington Avenue and Freeborn Street in Cecil shortly after 2 a.m.

The driver ignored an attempt to pull him over, according to the complaint, instead speeding off on County Road R at speeds reaching 110 mph.

The chase continued into Oconto County and into Menominee County before turning back into Shawano County, making nearly a full circle back to its starting point in Cecil.

An initial attempt to deploy spike strips to stop the vehicle failed, but they were used again on state Highway 22 as the vehicle headed northbound away from Cecil for a second time.

The chase covered more than 22 miles before it was over, according to the complaint.

Foral was ordered held on a $2,500 cash bond after an initial appearance Monday in Shawano-Menominee Circuit Court and is due back in court for a preliminary hearing Tuesday.
