Fourth felony case filed against teen
Prosecutors have filed more charges against a teen who already faces three pending felony cases.
Branden P. Lindsay, 19, Scandinavia, is charged with fleeing an officer and felony bail jumping.
Shortly before 9 p.m. Dec. 7, a resident of the N5800 block of Wolf Road in the town of Little Wolf called 911 to report that a man had parked his pickup truck across the road from her driveway.
She said she and her boyfriend went outside to ask him what he was doing, and he said he was looking for his cigarettes. While they were helping him search the ditch line, the boyfriend found a pot pipe.
They also reported that the man had called some friends to help him.
About five minutes later, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Zeamer turned north onto Wolf road and saw a truck in the road with its lights on and a second truck parked behind it. Two people were in the ditch and a man, who was on the road, climbed into the second truck and started driving away.
As the truck passed Zeamer, it stopped parallel to the deputy’s squad car.
“He was approximately four feet away from me and my red and blue lights were shining in his face. I could identify him as Branden Lindsay,” Zeamer reported. “He looked at me. He had red, bloodshot, glassy eyes and a slightly confused look on his face.”
Zeamer shouted to Lindsay to stop, but he drove south toward County Trunk B, according to the criminal complaint.
Zeamer was unable to locate Lindsay, so he returned to the scene, where the other two people had waited for him.
They gave Zeamer a glass pipe and a grinder with just over one gram of marijuana in it.
At the time of the incident, Lindsay was out on a signature bond.
