Sun Prairie woman charged again in connection with high speed chase

A Sun Prairie woman whose felony charge in connection with a high-speed chase was dismissed by a judge two months ago has been charged again.

20-year old Ana Brindley was charged Friday with felony eluding an officer. She’s scheduled to make an initial court appearance on the charge on October 21.

Authorities allege Brindley drove at speeds of up to 119 miles per hour on the Beltline in June before being arrested in a Fitchburg neighborhood.

In August, Dane County Judge Ellen Berz presided over a preliminary hearing for Brindley on the identical, eluding charge. A transcript of the hearing shows Berz balked at testimony by a Monona police officer, who had not interviewed a witness to Brindley’s driving, nor listened to a recorded, jail conversation of Brindley allegedly confessing to the driving crime.

“There’s been no identification of the defendant as being the person who was driving,” Berz said as she dismissed the case.

If the new charge is not dismissed at the scheduled hearing later this month, a preliminary hearing to determine if there’s sufficient evidence to bind over Brindley for trial will take place.
