ELKHORN—A Waukesha County Court Commissioner on Thursday declined to dismiss several charges a Delavan woman faces for allegedly coming close to hitting people while driving a stolen pickup truck.

A lawyer for Christine V. Faytus, 22, formerly of W9497 Lake Lorraine Road, filed a motion to dismiss two counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and one count each of attempting to operate a motor vehicle without owner's consent and criminal damage to property, court records show.

Court Commissioner Laura Lau dismissed the property damage charge only.

Faytus did not ask the court to dismiss charges of operating a motor vehicle without owner's consent, obstructing an officer and resisting an officer, court records show.

Elm Grove police reported that on Nov. 30, Faytus crashed a stolen white Ford F-150 pickup truck after yelling at onlookers, driving through yards and almost hitting two people, according to the criminal complaint. Police suspected she was intoxicated at the time.

Faytus is next due in court for a preliminary hearing at 3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 22.
