SHEBOYGAN – The man prosecutors allege tried stealing someone else’s motorcycle last week didn’t make it very far.
He got through the garage door — which had been closed — on the red two-wheeler, but that was about it.
Prosecutors this week charged Dusty Wayne Duncan, 37, of Manitowoc, with felonies for burglary of a building or dwelling and bail jumping, along with misdemeanors for second-offense OWI, criminal damage to property and obstructing an officer.

Officers who arrived could hear a motorcycle’s engine revving from inside the garage. When they got inside, they found the suspect — eventually identified as Duncan — in a black helmet and sitting atop the motorcycle, its engine running.
Noting the burglar had been reported as being possibly armed with a hammer, prosecutors said in their report one of the officers withdrew and pointed his pistol at the alleged suspect — but without putting his finger on the trigger — and ordered him to put his hands up.
Instead of raising his hands, though, the suspect drove.
