WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) A man who is charged with an 8th OWI will enter a plea in Marathon County court later today (Monday). 28-year-old Cole Knapp has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors. The specifics won't be known until his court appearance.
On May 12 he was pulled over on Grand Avenue in Rothschild, and admitted to police that he'd been drinking. He tried to flee on foot while the officer was checking his driving record. He was caught a short time later in a yard on Weston Avenue.
Knapp has been jailed since then, unable to post $15,000 bond.
If convicted at trial, he could get up to 15-years in prison.
