LAKE HALLIE, Wis. (WEAU) - A man is taken into custody after fleeing officers Tuesday early morning.

According to a release from the Lake Hallie Police Department, authorities observed a vehicle on the shoulder of the roadway with the driver slumped over to the side near the intersection of 46th Avenue and 133rd Street In the Village of Lake Hallie Tuesday at 2:23 a.m.

Officers contacted the driver, later identified as 52-year-old Bernard Robertson of Cadott, who provided false identifying information to them.

While attempting to take Robertson into custody, he began to fight with officers then fled on foot.
