According to court records, McKaig spent time in jail and eventually was fined.
oss a thread and video titled, “Idiot going 106 to get to school and work.”
According to a press release from the Coon Valley Police Department as well as coverage by WEAU and the LaCrosse Tribune, the offending driver was identified as 35-year-old Amanda McKaig of Gays Mills.
McKaig was observed by other Vernon County residents traveling at high speeds through the cities of Viroquia, Westby, and ultimatly Coon Valley.
As the Reddit video and full video thanks to Code Blue Cam show, once McKaig drove into Coon Valley the arresting sheriff clocked her going 106 MPH in a 30 (70 MPH over the posted speed limit.)
The body cam footage of the McKaig’s arrest was not without drama, notably McKaig tried to start her Hyundai SUV in an attempt to presumably flee before the Coon Valley Sheriff stopped her from doing just that.
Coverage stopped about a week later where we learned McKaig was still in custody, having not posted bail, and was waiting her “day in court.”
So, what ever happened to McKaig?
Thanks to Wisconsin’s transparent and publically available court records, we know (click here to read all the court details for yourself.)
McKaig was arrested and booked on April 29 and, as I understand, finally had her bond hearing in which she was released from custody to await her trail on June 28.
McKaig essentially served two months in jail which counts towards timed served.
McKaig eventually had her day in court on seven months after her arrest on November 29, 2022 in which the following charges were laid out for her.
As you can see, three charges were dismissed and McKaig was ultimately found guilty of Resisting/Failing to stop, Resisting or obstructing an officer, and Speeding on a City Highway (between 1-10 MPH.)
McKaig was ordered to serve jail time for the first two charges, which, since she already served two months, ticked that off.
McKaig was also fined $384 of which, as of this blog post, she still has not made payments towards. Interestingly enough, literally anyone can make payments for her if anyone, for whatever reason, wanted to.
So McKaig stayed in jail for two months and has to pay a $384 fine on top of whatever her bail bond cost.
