MILWAUKEE (WITI) – A Milwaukee County judge sentenced on Wednesday, July 31st, 24-year-old Christopher Wolf, the man who pleaded guilty to charges of fleeing an officer and operating while intoxicated.

Early Saturday morning, March 2nd, police say an order was taken at an Oak Creek McDonald’s drive-thru. The woman behind the counter noticed slurred speech and the smell of booze coming from the driver.

The McDonald’s employee called police. When cops arrived, they eventually noticed the driver taking off.

Wolf led officers on a chase for about 80 seconds — blowing through two traffic lights with officers reaching speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Eventually, the car was stopped by a snow bank, and police say the driver stopped, but not before resisting arrest.

Police reports say Wolf did not remember any of the pursuit, and was more than twice the legal limit.

In court on Wednesday, the judge sentenced Wolf on the drunk driving charge to four months in the House of Correction. The sentence was stayed until Friday, August 2nd. On the fleeing an officer charge, the judge sentenced Wolf to one year in the House of Correction — and then stayed that sentence, placing Wolf on probation for three years.
