Arrest warrant issued for man who led police on weeks-long manhunt in June

NOW: Arrest warrant issued for man who led police on weeks-long manhunt in June


WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A man who led Waukesha County authorities on a weeks-long manhunt after a violent domestic incident is once again being sought by police. 

“I’m upset that the legal system let this happen. With the manhunt and all the time he was on the road trying to get away. They should have known he was a flight risk," said Terry Pisarek, neighbor. 

Jonathan Pogreba posted $150,000 bail in October but hasn't shown up to court since. 

Pogreba was involved in a domestic incident in June where police say he pointed a gun at his wife and threatened her. He was then on the run for more than two weeks. 

Last week, an arrest warrant was issued after authorities discovered Pogreba's GPS ankle bracelet was tampered with or cut off. He was charged with two counts of felony bail jumping. 

His attorney appeared in court today and told the judge he has not been in contact with Pogreba recently. The judge issued another arrest warrant today and his bail was revoked. 

"I am going to revoke and forfeit bail. If the parties have an objection to that bail forfeiture, there's a process they can follow to file a motion with regard to the final forfeiture of the bail," said Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael P. Maxwell. 

A new court date has not been set for Pogreba as he is once again on the run.
