(Billy J Daniels)
On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, at 10:56 a.m., a Barron County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop a vehicle on 22 3⁄4 Street west of Chetek for a traffic violation. The vehicle increased its speed and failed to stop for the deputy and a short chase ensued into the City of Chetek and came to a stop in a yard on Banks St.
The driver and passenger in the car fled on foot and the deputy was able to apprehend the driver. The driver was identified as Billy J Daniels, 41 of Chetek. The passenger is still at large and his identity is unknown at this time.
Daniels is being held in the Barron County Jail on charges of Fleeing an Officer, Possession of Meth, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Bail Jumping and several outstanding warrants.
Anyone with information as to who the other occupant of this vehicle was should contact the Barron County Sheriff’s Department at 715-537-3106.
Special thanks go out to the Chetek Police Department and the Cameron Police Department for their assistance with this call.
