Oneida Co. Chase Ends with Self-Inflicted Gunshot

Posted Tuesday, January 22, 2013 --- 1:50 p.m.

TOWN OF NEWBOLD, Wis. (AP) -- Officials say a sheriff's deputy's pursuit of a vehicle in Oneida County ended when the driver shot and killed himself.

Family members of the man were concerned about his safety and asked the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department for help. That department contacted Oneida County and a deputy on patrol in the Town of Newbold spotted the man's vehicle shortly before 11 p.m. Monday.

The driver fled at a high rate of speed and the deputy pursued. Authorities say the vehicle eventually stopped and the armed driver stepped out and took his own life.
