A 21-year-old Madison resident faces several charges after fleeing from Dane County deputies Sept. 5.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office said a deputy stopped a blue 2007 Pontiac G6 at about 9:20 p.m. at Highway B and Keenan Road.

During the 20-minute pursuit, the driver stopped several times, then resumed his flight, in a relatively circuitous route through portions of Fitchburg, the Town and city of Madison, and the Town of Dunn.

The pursuit concluded when car became disabled after striking a curb in a roundabout at the end of Nobel Drive and Fahey Glen in Fitchburg, according to the sheriff’s office.

the driver was arrested for eluding, bail jumping, possession of drug paraphernalia and cited for operating after suspension. There were no injuries or property damage as a result of the pursuit.
