Grafton man charged with trying to incite shootout with officers, fleeing them in Highway 60 pursuit

    A 38-year-old man was charged Monday in Ozaukee County Circuit Court with calling authorities to tell them he was armed and would not hesitate to shoot officers if they didn’t kill him first, then leading them on a high-speed chase through Grafton.

    Christian D. Pressley of Grafton was arrested July 12 after fleeing officers at speeds that reached 80 mph on Highway 60 and nearby streets, according to the criminal complaint.

    Pressley is charged with felony counts of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and attempting to flee an officer and misdemeanor counts of second-offense drunken driving and disorderly conduct.

    Judge Sandy Williams set  Pressley’s bail at $25,000 during a hearing Tuesday.

    According to the criminal complaint, the Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Department issued a bulletin late Thursday, July 11, asking officers to locate Pressley, who had indicated he was armed with a Ruger P90 handgun, would shoot any officer that confronted him and wanted to commit “suicide by cop.”
