CHIPPEWA FALLS — An Eau Claire man has been charged after he reportedly fled from officers and drove in a reckless manner.
Corie S. Bergeron, 44, 6474 Prairie Circle, was charged in Chippewa County Court with two counts of second-degree recklessly endangering safety, plus attempting to elude an officer, obstructing an officer and bail jumping.
According to the criminal complaint, police were called to Ray’s Beach in the town of Lafayette for an incident on Jan. 23. Bergeron sped away from officers, drove the wrong way through a roundabout and then didn’t stop for a stop sign near Stillson Elementary. The officer stopped pursuit. Bergeron was on bond from Monroe County.
Bergeron appeared for a bond hearing in Chippewa County Court, where Judge Steve Gibbs ordered he be held on a $5,000 cash bond. Bergeron will return to court Tuesday.
