The man who has been on the run from police for roughly two weeks turned himself in Thursday.

According to our ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, WISN, the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office said it was notified that Jonathan Pogreba, 43, had an attorney who scheduled a court appearance Thursday afternoon.

Pogreba was arrested as he arrived at the Waukesha County Courthouse.

Authorities across the state have searched for Pogreba following a domestic violence incident at his home. Deputies said Pogreba pointed a gun at his wife and slammed her against a car and into the ground.

On Thursday, June 7 at about 6:34 p.m, Trempealeau County police received a report that a cabin had been broken into in the town of Preston, southeast of Blair. Police believe it was Pogreba who broke into the cabin, and they believe he quickly left Trempealeau County.

At a court appearance shortly after his arrest, charges of 2nd Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Intentionally Point a Firearm At A Person were filed against him.

According to the Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office, Jonathon Pogreba, 43, is also wanted after a domestic situation involving a gun in Waukesha County.

On Thursday, June 7 at about 6:34 p.m, Trempealeau County police received a report that a cabin had been broken into in the town of Preston, southeast of Blair. Police believe it was Pogreba who broke into the cabin, and they believe he quickly left Trempealeau County.

Authorities said there was a small amount of blood found in the cabin so he may be injured. There was also a note left at the cabin that police believe he wrote.

The note said he took the plates off of a white BMW he was driving and would be traveling to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota where he would leave the car and move out on foot. 

Pogreba’s credit card was used in Mauston, and police are attempting to gather more information on what he purchased.

Pogreba is considered armed and dangerous.

Police said he is approximately 6 foot tall and 210 pounds. He may be driving a white 2015 BMW 328XI, 4-door sedan with WI registration plates of 128 YCW that he allegedly stole in Waukesha County.
