Mentgen was taken into custody during a high-risk traffic stop at the Edgerton Oasis on Haugan Road, according to sheriff’s officials.

Mentgen is currently being held in the Dane County Jail pending extradition. Deputies took possession on the 2007 Dodge Caravan that Mentgen was driving, as well as “numerous pieces of evidence.”
