Man Tased After Drunk Driving Chase

From WMTV

A drunken driver was arrested early Saturday morning after he hit a squad car and needed to be tased.
Police were called to a fight at the Pup Bar in the Village of Dane at around 1 a.m.
When authorities arrived, 54-year-old suspect Rollien Brown grabbed his pit bull terrier and took off, driving drunk down Highway 113.
Police pulled over Brown at the intersection of Highway 113 and County Road V. Police approached but Brown refused to exit his vehicle. Instead, he pulled a U-turn and ended up striking a squad car.
Brown continued down Highway 113 and police laid down spike strips. His front tires were punctured, but Brown continued to drive on his rims all the way back to his house in Dane.
Brown finally got out of his car when he arrived at his home on North Street. He continued to resist police and needed to be tased and taken into custody.
Brown faces charges of 5th Offense Felony OWI, Evading, Resisting Arrest and Causing Property Damage. His dog was taken into custody by a neighbor.


Update June 25, 2011 - The preceding article has been updated with additional details including that a neighbor had taken control of the dog at the time of Rollien Brown's arrest.
