Detectives from the Fitchburg Police Department are looking for assistance to identify a victim in a dangerous incident that occurred on February 2, 2023, in the parking lot of a Fitchburg business. A 52-year-old man, who was wanted in that incident, was arrested last Thursday night following a pursuit.
Sheron Howell, 52, made an initial appearance in Dane County Circuit Court Monday on charges of second-degree recklessly endangering safety (two counts), fleeing/eluding an officer causing property damage, possession with intent to deliver fentanyl, and possession with intent to deliver marijuana. Howell was also booked into jail for two warrants issued in 2005 (case links: 1 & 2 )
Fitchburg detectives had been searching for Howell following the incident that occurred around 2:45 p.m. on February 2 in the parking lot of Kelley’s Market (Mobil) at 2956 Fish Hatchery Road. Howell was identified as the driver of a vehicle that struck a man in the parking lot. After striking the man with his vehicle, Howell turned around to drive at the man again.
Last Thursday, Howell was spotted driving by a Fitchburg Police sergeant who attempted to pull Howell over. Howell did not stop for the sergeant and eventually came to a stop on Highway 12 near CTH N after sideswiping an uninvolved driver who was uninjured. After arresting Howell, officers located fentanyl and marijuana in the vehicle.
Detectives would like to speak with the victim of the incident (pictured below) that occurred on February 2 in the parking lot of the Kelley’s Market/Mobil Gas Station on Fish Hatchery Road.
