Village of Lannon - Hans Rohne of Sussex, 20, was arrested on Tuesday, Aug. 23, for evading a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon. Rohne is also being charged with a misdemeanor of bail jumping.
A Lannon police officer observed Rohne exceeding the speed limit while exiting a roundabout on his motorcycle at about 7:20 a.m. Aug. 23. A Lannon officer attempted to pull over Rohne over for, but he evaded the officer. Rohne eventually abandoned his motorcycle in the grassy area of A&D Roofing on Edgewood Drive, and fled. After commands from the officer to show his hands and come out from the area, he complied and was taken into custody.
Rohne was searched and a blue shoulder bag was found in his custody. The officer asked if he had any weapons in the bag, to which Rohne responded: "There might be a gun in the bag. I'm not sure. It's not mine," according to the criminal complaint. The officer found a firearm in the bag and concluded Rohne was ineligible for a concealed carry permit because of his age.
After the arrest, Rohne told officers he had been a firearm instructor for the Boy Scouts, and never meant for the incident to happen.
Rohne is being charged with a felony for attempting to flee a police officer, which may result in a maximum of a $10,000 fine and/or three years and six months imprisonment. For the count of carrying a concealed weapon, he is facing a maximum of the same fine and up to nine months, or both penalties.
Lastly, Rohne is being charged with a misdemeanor of bail jumping for intentionally failing to comply with his bond terms, according to the complaint. For this he faces up to $10,000 in fines and/or nine months in prison.
Rohne's sentencing hearing is at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Waukesha County Courthouse.
