A Cameron man who allegedly led police on a high-speed pursuit starting in Rice Lake pleaded not guilty on Friday to fleeing an officer and second-offense operating while intoxicated on Feb. 14, just over a year after pleading guilty in Burnett County to homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. Jordan J. Matrious, 19, faces the felony fleeing charge and misdemeanor OWI as a repeater plus a felony bail jumping charge in Barron County Circuit Court. If convicted on the attempting to flee an officer charge, Matrious faces a fine up to $10,000, imprisonment up to 3½ years or both.

McConnell, in return, has little use for Trump, declaring that he bears some responsibility for the seditious actions of his supporters at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, even though he will support him if Trump is the GOP candidate for president in 2024.
