As indicated by the criminal grumbling, Wagner was important for a policing force attempting to capture Wilson for managing fentanyl that prompted an excess passing. The group captured Wilson and stuck his vehicle between two Equity Division trucks.
Wagner moved toward Wilson’s vehicle conveying a ballistic safeguard. Another specialist, Nathan Peskie, was close to him with a rifle. Wagner told Dane Area Sheriff’s criminal investigators that he saw Wilson arrive at under the driver’s seat with his left hand and squirm with something with his right hand.
