A Dubuque man faces charges after escaping from the Prairie View Residential Facility near Fayette, then causing damage to a vehicle that was sent out to get him.


Friday afternoon (Aug. 10) at about 2pm, the Fayette County Sheriff got a report from Prairie View staff, that 57 year old Alan Sarazin, originally from Dubuque, had left the facility.

When facility staff were sent out to get him, he kicked the 2016 Dodge Caravan that the employee had been driving, putting a dent in the door.

The van is owned by Prairie View.

Sarazin was taken into custody and charged with Criminal Mischief in the 5th Degree.
He was held in jail until his initial appearance before a magistrate.
