Walworth County prosecutors say a Genoa City man now charged with fourth-offense OWI did not stop speeding after police tried to pull him over last week.
Town of East Troy police said at about 2:56 a.m. Jan. 4, they saw Justin R. Geiger, 37, of W281 Circle Drive, driving between 80 and 85 mph in a 70-mph zone on Interstate 43, according to a criminal complaint.
Police reported activating their sirens and emergency lights, but Geiger did not pull over, the complaint states. Instead, the pursuit continued for about a mile. Geiger swerved and drove outside the white road lines before eventually coming to a stop—partially in traffic—in front of a gas station at Highway 20 and County ES.
Geiger is also charged with attempting to flee or elude a traffic officer.
Geiger admitted to having “one drink,” according to the complaint. Results from a blood test are pending.
Geiger has previous OWI convictions for violations in 2002, 2005 and 2017, the complaint states.
