Author:

A fugitive Wis. police lieutenant considered to be armed and dangerous is now in custody.

WEAU reports Waupon police officer Bradley Young, 43, gave himself up around 5 p.m. Tuesday after seeking refuge in a cabin near Spooner that was quickly surrounded by a SWAT team.

The statewide manhunt for Young began Monday evening after he lead Barron County Sheriff’s deputies on a high-speed car chase in a stolen pickup, then fled into a wooded area near Rice Lake on foot.

Authorities say Young is wanted for burglarizing a Green Lake restaurant and stealing two vehicles.

"It's one of our own," Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told FOX 9 prior to Young's arrest. "He broke the trust. This guy violated trust of police officers, and that makes me want to catch him even more."

Young is being transported to the Burnett County Jail.
