LINCOLN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin man who’s been wanted since 2011 – and who barely escaped arrest last weekend – is finally in jail.
Lincoln County sheriff’s deputies said they stopped by Timothy Tutor’s house Tuesday evening, and was told by his 20-year-old daughter that she had not seen him since last Friday.
Deputies then saw Timothy running behind the house in an apparent effort to escape. Officers then drew a Tazer stun gun, and he was arrested.
Probation agents have been looking for the 49-year-old Tutor since 2011, after he reportedly skipped out on them following a conviction on 7 counts of not paying child support.
He was almost caught last Friday night, but a K-9 search was not successful.
Authorities said Tutor had a marijuana pipe on him, and he could face a charge of possessing marijuana paraphernalia – along with an absconding charge for being on the lam so long.
Officials say Tutor’s daughter also faces a possible charge of obstructing police, for allegedly lying about her father’s whereabouts.
