Hayfield man flees police, attempts to ram squads following reported DANCO violation
(ABC 6 News) – A Hayfield man faces several charges after fleeing police and attempting to ram Dodge County squad cars.
Chad Cordie, 41, is charged with 1st-degree assault, fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, 1st-degree damage to property, and a DANCO violation.
On November 10, deputies were called to a Hayfield pub for a reported violation of a Domestic Abuse No Contact Order (DANCO).
The victim told deputies the Cordie called her work and told her “things are going to go down tonight between us.” The victim believed that Cordie was driving around the area because that’s the only way he would have known she was at the pub.
A deputy was able to locate Cordie’s vehicle and initiated a traffic stop. Cordie stopped in a parking lot and began to punch the window.
The deputy spoke with Cordie who began to make bizarre statements. The deputy believed he was under the influence of a narcotic.
Cordie shoved the deputy and another deputy showed up and sprinted back to his vehicle saying “I’m not going to jail.”
Cordie made a u-turn in his vehicle, and drove directly towards the deputies to ram their vehicles. The deputies were able to maneuver their squads to avoid a collision.
Cordie then led the deputies on a chase through Hayfield traveling at up to 70mph, he eventually hit a trash can and slammed into the victims vehicle, ending the pursuit.
Cordie exited his vehicle and he was taken into custody.
Cordie’s next scheduled court date is November 28.
