Story By Hayley Tenpas

LAC DU FLAMBEAU - Police have taken an escaped prisoner into custody.

The Vilas County Sheriff's Department says yesterday 18 year old Jeffery J. Bauman Jr. walked away from St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield.

He had been in the Vilas County jail, but was taken to the hospital Friday after claiming he was suffering paralysis in his legs.

Around 12:40 Wednesday morning, Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police located Bauman in Lac du Flambeau.

That's when Bauman fled by car.

He then crashed the vehicle and fled on foot.

He was taken into custody by police just after 3 this morning.

He now faces charges for escape, fleeing an officer, recklessly endangering safety.

The Vilas County Sheriff's Office and Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police were helped by Woodruff Police, Minocqua Police and the Oneida County Sheriff's Office.

NORTHWOODS - Children went back to school across the Northwoods Tuesday. That's why it's important to make sure you're prepared for anything.

Emergency workers say it's important to have a plan in place for all possible emergency situations. That plan should include emergency contacts, safe meeting locations, and emergency kits in homes and cars. Officials say taking time to plan and practice is crucial.

"Look at things before it happens," says Dawn Robinson, Oneida County Emergency Management Program Assistant. "Make sure your family, your loved ones, your neighbors, make sure everyone has a plan and practice those plans. That way when something does happen, it becomes more, that you know what to do, so be prepared as much as possible, and practice."

Part of being prepared is communication and knowing who to contact. Officials encourage parents to make sure that schools have up-to-date emergency contact information, especially for small children.
