WI Cop Faces Charges for Burglary, High-Speed Chase

This ain't Smokey and the Bandit


WAUPUN, Wis. — A Wisconsin police officer accused of burglary, stealing two vehicles and leading other officers on a high-speed chase has submitted his resignation.

The Waupun Police and Fire Commission was expected to accept Lt. Bradley Young's resignation on Thursday. Waupun Police Department Deputy Chief Scott Louden told The Reporter Media that Young handed it in last week.

"This helps clear the way for us in filling (Young's) position," Louden said. "The Common Council will be asked to not only fill the lieutenant's position in the interim but also to backfill any officer's position that becomes vacant from that promotion."
