SPRING GREEN, Wis. -

An Arena man was captured hours after eluding police who were pursuing him as a suspect in a hit-and-run case, according to the Iowa County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said Scott A Neefe, 24, was involved in a hit-and-run near Pecks Farm Market at 6445 Highway 14 at about 10 p.m. Wednesday and eluded a Spring Green police officer.

Neefe fled on foot after his vehicle left the roadway on Coon Rock Road near Arena and damaged a wire fence and trees, according to deputies.

Neefe was captured more than two hours later, evaluated for hypothermia and transported to Sauk County.

Deputies said alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.
