Man Claiming Highway 41 Beating Gets Arrested

Police: Man Lied About Highway 41 Beating

By Jason Zimmerman

A story told by a Kaukauna man who said he was pulled over along Highway 41 and beaten turns out to be a lie. Patrick Propson, 22, was arrested late Friday afternoon on two counts of obstructing justice. [...]

[Report updates October 5th account (q.v.) of a man who claimed that, while driving on U.S. 41, he stopped his car after the car behind him kept flashing its lights. Three men in the following car then supposedly beat him up. The account, noted a couple of reporters, is similar to "a common urban legend...in which gang members lure victims by flashing their headlights at them[.]"]
