8-30-13 report says waupun police officer was suicidal
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Court documents say a former Waupun police officer accused of going on a burglary spree planned to kill himself in a cabin. Prosecutors in Green Lake, Barron and Burnett counties have charged Bradley Young with multiple counts, including burglary, car theft and leading police on a high speed chase. Police captured him at a cabin outside Spooner last month. The Burnett County criminal complaint says after Young eluded police in Barron County, he went to a family member's cabin in Burnett County. He planned to kill himself there but he couldn't find a gun at the cabin. He found a rifle in another unoccupied cabin but decided to surrender after he got a call from his mother and spoke to his children.
