BRODHEAD, Wis. — A Beloit man is facing multiple criminal charges after he allegedly crashed into a Broadhead Police Department squad car while driving drunk on the Fourth of July.

Authorities with the BPD said officers were dispatched to the McDonald’s in the 2100 block of 1st Center Avenue for a report of a possible intoxicated driver in the drive through. When they arrived, police found the suspect vehicle leaving the parking lot.

When police tried stopping the suspect vehicle, the driver, 22-year-old Anthony J. Hoffman Hernandez, drove away from police, driving through stop signs as he fled.

Hoffman Hernandez eventually reached the end of a street where he turned his vehicle around and collided with a BPD squad car shortly after. The officer driving the squad car suffered minor injuries.

Hoffman Hernandez fled the scene after the crash.

Police continued their pursuit at high speeds before eventually stopping near Beloit Newark and Knutson roads in Rock County.

Rock County authorities were able to find the vehicle and continued the chase, which ultimately came to an end when Hoffman Hernandez crashed his vehicle in the 4200 block of South Afton Road.

Hoffman Hernandez was booked into the Rock County Jail on charges of violating conditions of his probation in both Green and Rock counties. Brodhead police are requesting charges for knowingly fleeing an officer, hit-and-run causing injury, first-offense OWI and recklessly endangering safety.

The Brodhead Police Department was assisted by the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin State Patrol and the Town of Beloit Police Department.
