Milwaukee man sentenced to jail time for 2015 shooting and high speed chase in Dodge County
FOX LAKE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Anthony McCaskill, 27, of Milwaukee, was sentenced in a Dodge County Circuit Court to one and a half years in prison and two years of extended supervision for Discharging a Firearm Towards a Person and Endangering Safety in a 2015 incident.
The case spans back to September 2015, when local law enforcement received a call about shots being fired near the Kwik Trip in Fox Lake.
Authorities say dispatch advised the Officers that the suspect had fled in his vehicle and that the victim’s vehicle was now chasing the suspect with both vehicles traveling at rates of speed over 120 mph southbound on Highway 151.
Reports indicate that when the police officers stopped the suspect’s vehicle driven by Anthony McCaskill, they detected a strong smell of marijuana, located a Glock .40 caliber handgun and two very young children in the backseat.
Additionally, authorities say that the victim’s vehicle had several bullet holes in it.
The case went to trial in January of 2016, and the defendant was convicted.
Officials say that during the trial it was revealed that an altercation had occurred over an alleged sexual act committed by the victim against the defendant’s girlfriend while all the participants were at the Fox Lake Kwik Trip.
Reportedly, this led to a second altercation, and a high speed chase by the victims of the defendant.
In a release from the Dodge County District Attorney’s Office, authorities say that during the chase, the defendant fired multiple shots at the victim’s vehicle.
Former Judge John Storck ultimately placed McCaskill on probation for the felony offenses.
Records indicate that the defendant’s felony probation was revoked in 2021 and the defendant returned to court to be sentenced.
District Attorney Kurt Klomberg stated during sentencing, “This was one of the most complicated and bizarre prosecutions of my career. It has only become stranger now that one of the victims has been convicted of murdering the other victim in another complicated and even more bizarre trial than this one.”
