A hefty cash bail has been ordered for a 37 year old Appleton man who led police on a high speed chase in Fond du Lac and Dodge counties…slamming into a sheriff’s squad. Maxwell Verkuilen made his initial Fond du Lac court appearance Friday on charges of recklessly endangering safety and attempting to flee an officer. Judge Peter Grimm ordered $10,000 cash bail. Sheriff’s captain Rick Olig says the chase happened Monday evening March 3rd when the suspect’s vehicle was spotted on Highway 41 southbound near Highway 23. The vehicle turned northbound on 41, exited at County Highway B colliding with a sheriff’s squad. The squad rolled over. The vehicle headed north on 175 into the city of Fond du Lac. The vehicle continued southbound on Highway 151 into Dodge County and eventually turned into a driveway off Oakwood Road, traveled around some outbuildings before being struck by a sheriff’s squad bringing the vehicle to a stop. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 28th.
