Driver collides with New Berlin squad car, arrested after chase

Dec. 12, 2011

A 29-year-old drunken driver from Brookfield collided with a New Berlin police squad car and led officers on a chase Saturday morning that reached up to 95 mph and ended when the suspect's car struck a curb, police said.

It was the second time in a month that a drunken driver had struck a staffed New Berlin police car.

The man's car collided with a New Berlin police squad car at 12:34 a.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of S. Calhoun Road, but the driver didn't stop. That started a 1.5-mile high-speed pursuit with a police officer. When the officer stopped pursuing, the man's car struck a curb at the intersection of S. Calhoun Road and W. Blue Mound Road in Brookfield, disabling the vehicle.

The driver was arrested on suspicion of eluding an officer, hit-and-run and first-offense drunken driving.

It was nearly a month to the day - about 2 a.m. Friday, Nov. 11 - that another drunken driver of similar age hit a squad car at the intersection of W. Greenfield Ave. and S Calhoun Road. That driver, a 28-year-old Milwaukee man, was arrested on suspicion of third-offense drunken driving and failure to yield right of way.

Nobody was injured in either of the incidents.
