McFarland man arrested for fifth OWI, eluding, Sheriff’s Office says

Madison (WKOW) — A McFarland man was arrested today and faces a fifth operating-while-intoxicated offense after leading deputies and police on a chase.

Troy D. Hall, 42, was driving on Commercial Avenue in Madison when a Dane County Sheriff’s Deputy tried to pull him over just after 2 a.m. Wednesday. The deputy had noticed Hall’s tail lights were out, according to a news release for the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.

Hall led the deputy on a one-mile chase. The sheriff’s office said Hall and three other people in the car got out and ran after the truck turned onto railroad tracks off of Milwaukee Street and became stuck.

Deputies, Madison Police and State Patrol officers created a perimeter around the area they believed Hall and his passengers had fled.

With help from a K9 unit, Hall and the others were caught, the statement said.

Hall was taken to Dane County Jail on charges of felony eluding, a parole violation and a fifth OWI, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

One of Hall’s passengers was an 18-year-old girl “cited for underage alcohol and released,” the statement said.
