The Dane County Sheriff's Office said Ryan F. Mountford, of Portage, was pulled over at about 1:25 a.m. at Alvarez Avenue and North Walbridge. A deputy stopped Mountford after he reportedly saw the vehicle roll though a stop sign and speed more than 20 mph over the posted limit on Highway 51. The sheriff's department said Mountford refused to participate in field sobriety testing but did voluntarily submit to a preliminary breath test.

"If we get paged to an incident we can't communicate back and forth with the 911 Center, and at times we can't communicate with each other," Chief Martin Lamers said. "Because if our firefighters are entering a burning building, and they lose radio communication their lives are in jeopardy."
