A Gleason man wanted by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections has been taken into custody.
On Tuesday evening at 6:00 PM two Deputies stopped at the home of Timothy Lee Tutor in the 5000 block of Town Hall Rd. A family member of Tutor’s was in the driveway and she informed Deputies that she had not seen Tutor since Friday. At that time one of the Deputies witnessed Tutor running behind the house. He drew his tazer and ordered Tutor to surrender which he did. When Tutor was taken into custody a pipe commonly used to smoke marijuana was located in Tutor’s pocket. He was brought to the Lincoln County Jail where he was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia along with the warrant.
The family member who told Deputies that Tutor was not present was issued a county ordinance ticket for obstructing an officer.
Deputies are seeking the public’s help in locating a wanted Gleason man who fled from them on Friday evening. Just before 8:30 PM a Deputy was on patrol in Gleason when he spotted Timothy Lee Tutor outside of a residence on State Rd 17 just south of County Rd X. Knowing Tutor was wanted by the Wisconsin Department of Corrections the Deputy attempted to take him into custody but Tutor fled on foot.
The K9 unit from the Tomahawk Police Department responded to the scene and Deputies assisted as the dog tracked Tutor to the area of Town Hall Rd before losing the scent. Deputies suspected two Gleason residents harbored and or assisted Tutor in his escape and they may be facing charges of obstructing an officer.

Tutor is 49 years of age, he is 5’8, weighs 150 pounds and has blonde hair and blue eyes.
