W. VA man fearing conspiracy charged with fleeing from deputy

Suspect spoke of human trafficking, Masons and Reptilian shape-shifters

A West Virginia man arrested for fleeing from a Shawano County sheriff’s deputy Thursday said he feared for his life because of a wide-ranging human trafficking conspiracy that he wanted to report.

Thomas J. Brock, 24, was spotted by the deputy speeding on U.S. Highway 45, going an estimated 77 mph in a 45 mph zone, according to the criminal complaint.

The vehicle sped up to about 100 mph when the deputy tried to pull it over.

The deputy pursued the vehicle into Langlade County where the chase was terminated.

The vehicle was later stopped by Antigo police after being spotted going nearly 80 mph in a 25 mph zone.

The Shawano County deputy responded to the scene of the traffic stop.

According to the complaint, Brock told authorities he fled from the deputy because he feared for his life.

He said there was a “national conspiracy” underway, and he was on his way to Rhinelander to talk to the mayor.

“Brock stated he was coming from Jefferson County, West Virginia, and the human trafficking there is bad,” the complaint states. “Brock stated he had been shot at, and his whole family was plotting against him.”

Brock asked the deputy if he was a Reptilian, according to the complaint. The deputy replied he was not. Brock said Reptilians are shape-shifters.

Brock also claimed that the Masons are involved in the human trafficking.

At an appearance in Shawano County Circuit Court Monday, Judge William Kussel Jr. ordered a competency evaluation for Brock.

A status conference in his case was scheduled for Sept. 4. He is being held on a $5,000 cash bond.

Brock could face a maximum 3½ years in prison and $10,000 fine for the felony count of attempting to flee or elude an officer.
