The Chippewa County Sheriff's Office says a man arrested Monday after going on a rampage was already in legal trouble.
Thomas Harding Junior is accused of stealing a vehicle in Lake Hallie. Witnesses say he ran his former girlfriend off the road when he spotted her and jumped on her car -- before he managed to out-run a Wisconsin State Trooper. When he was found at a Chippewa Falls motel Tuesday, nearby rooms were evacuated before Harding was taken into custody. At least two felonies are among six charges police have recommended the district attorney add to stalking and harassment offenses.
