Man on ATV nearly strikes resident

SOMERS — Deputies arrested a 23-year-old man after he nearly struck a resident while riding an all-terrain vehicle 40 mph through a subdivision with an undisclosed location Thursday night.

The man was taken into custody following the 7:27 p.m. incident, according to a Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department report. Authorities recommended charges of felony resisting and fleeing arrest, obstructing and resisting, disorderly conduct and trespassing.

According to the report, the man traveled on the ATV at 40 mph, nearly striking the resident before pulling over in a field west of some town homes near the village’s water tower.

Authorities also learned the suspect’s name and contacted his mother, who told them he had returned home.

The suspect had abandoned his ATV in the woods nearby and ran to his house, according to the report.
