EAU CLAIRE Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – An Eau Claire man is in custody after officers say he rammed a police car in Lake Hallie. The Lake Hallie Police Department was called around six last night for an unknown man inside a home. At the scene, an officer found 53-year-old James Tyler in a car in the driveway.
The officer approached the vehicle, and says Tyler attempted to drive away, backing into the squad car, hitting a home, striking a dumpster, and hitting a fence. Tyler attempted to drive away again, and officers chased him for a short distance before he stopped. Tyler blew a .189 on a breath test while being arrested.
