Dodge County Sheriff's Deputies chase dump truck that spread dirt and rocks over highway

WESTFORD, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Wednesday evening around 7 p.m. the Dodge County Sheriff's responded to a family disturbance in Westford.

As Deputies were responding they got word that the suspect was leaving in a dump truck. A Deputy saw the dump truck on County Highway G and tried to stop it but the truck kept going north on Highway G.

During the pursuit, the dump truck driver raised the box of the dump truck causing dirt and rocks to spill onto the highway. Squad cars were able to navigate through the debris which covered 40 to 50 yards of the highway. 

The suspect kept going into Columbia County where it eventually drove off the road into a field where it got stuck in mud. 

34-year-old Randolph man Theodore Tamminga was arrested for his 5th OWI.
