Walworth County officials use drone to catch fleeing suspect: 'We were able to save him'

•, by Ben Handelman and Megan Pospychala

Walworth County deputies eventually spotted the truck heading into Lake Geneva. Police successfully deployed stop sticks.

"The sticks blew out the tires on the trucks. The truck only made it about another mile," said Gritzner.

Officers say Bohot was not done running; K-9 offices lost the suspect's track on foot. That's when Detective Seth Keller, got a call to deploy the drone.

"That's what it was. We need you to come in and fly the drone," said Keller.

The drone, which is capable of tracking heat on the ground, had a lead within minutes.

"I turned and we were looking south there was only one thing really lit up," said Detective Keller.

Closer inspection, authorities had one more surprise. As offices closed in, they discovered Bohot was unconscious in a bog and had signs of hypothermia.
