Westby man arrested after pursuit
A Westby man was taken into custody Tuesday after fleeing from a Vernon County deputy. Sheriff John Spears said, “25-year old Lucas Widner was traveling east on Highway 82 near the intersection of Morning Star Road in the Town of Union when a deputy met the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop for speeding. Instead of stopping, Widner accelerated in an attempt to flee. A short pursuit ensued and Widner stopped after driving off the road into a ditch on Morning Star Road. The Sheriff’s Office drug dog was used and marijuana and paraphernalia were located inside the vehicle. Widner was apprehended and taken to the Vernon County Detention Center.
