Video Game Sparks Teenage Rage, Sussex Man Allegedly Flees Police
Teenage suspect tells deputy he didn't know he was trying to pull him over.
A 19-year-old Sussex man is facing charges after he allegedly got into an argument with his parents, then refused to pull over for a Waukesha County sheriff’s deputy trying to track him down.
Cody JH Williams was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Wednesday with one count of failure to obey an officer and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, he faces up to one year in prison and $11,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 4:44 p.m. Aug. 9, sheriff’s deputies were called to a residence in the N7300 block of Dentons Run after Williams got into an argument with his parents because they wouldn’t allow him to buy a video game with his credit card. Williams began to punch doors and windows inside the home, so his mother locked herself in a room and called police.
When deputies arrived, Williams had already left and was driving eastbound on Silver Spring Road. The deputy came up behind Williams with his light and siren on, and even though Williams initially pulled over, he began to drive away as the squad pulled behind him.
Williams then tried to turn into the parking lot of Walgreens, but failed, then ran a red light at Highway 164 and Main Street. The deputy stopped trying to follow him at that point. Williams was later found and arrested at his grandparent’s home.
Williams admitted to the argument and said he drove away so he could cool off. He said he didn’t know the deputy was trying to pull him over at the time. It should also be noted that Williams plead no contest to disorderly conduct charges in 2011, according to the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access system.
He’s currently free on a $1,000 signature bond while awaiting trial.
