Waukesha County man appears in court after being on the run for more than two weeks

WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The man who turned himself into Sheriff's deputies after being on the run for more than two weeks made his first court appearance on Friday. 

Jonathan Pogreba was taken into custody Thursday at the Waukesha County Courthouse. 

He was wanted for a domestic incident that happened at his home earlier in June in the Town of Eagle. The prosecution asked for a higher cash bond, saying he could run away again and the court commissioner agreed. 

"I am aware that he turned himself in, but Mr. Pogreba did decide to run, stay gone, and was unable to be located and the court has concerns that he has the ability to do that,' said Waukesha County Court Commissioner Molly Jasmer. 

"He was shot, so, I think someone being shot at, they would tend to run, he may have run longer than we had hoped," Donna Kuchler, Pogreba's attorney argued Thursday. 

Pogreba's bail was set at $150,000 cash. He will be back in court next week.
