The suspect later got off the railroad tracks and into a field behind a series of homes. There, officers were able to approach, remove the suspect from the skid-steer and arrest him.

Court documents show Peschke's charges include operating while intoxicated and fleeing/eluding officers; if convicted, it would be his fourth OWI.
