Road Rage Incident Leads To Arrest In Minocqua
Law enforcement agencies were called Friday morning(5/16) as an alleged road rage incident was going on on U.S. Highway 51. The incident caused a lockdown at Minocqua-Hazelhurst-Lake Tomahawk school.
An eyewitness said a gun was allegedly pointed at another vehicle. It was reported the suspect's vehicle drove through the parking lot at M-H-LT Elementary School. School administrators conducted a preventative lockdown.
Law enforcement found the suspect parked at the intersection of Lee Road and Titus Road. While checking the car, officers found a loaded .40 caliber hand gun. A 34 year old town of Woodruff man was taken into custody. Charges are pending from the Oneida County District Attorney's office. Should charges be filed, a name will be released at that time.
Also, a 14 year old has been questioned concerning a fire and vandalism April 27 at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic Church in Eagle River.
The Vilas County Sheriff's deputy arrived at the church early that morning to find a small fire inside the church. The fire was put out by the officer. Criminal damage to the property was also discovered.
Because the suspect is a juvenile, no name or other details can be made public. The matter has been referred to the Vilas County District Attorney and the Vilas County Juvenile Intake Office.
