More charges filed against pilot in plane crash

The man accused of fleeing from police in his airplane before crashing in a Waupaca County cornfield is facing additional charges.

Earlier this month, police arrested the 47-year-old man for violating a restraining order and other charges.

Now, he is also charged with felony recklessly endangering safety and other counts. Police say he took off in the plane despite instructions to wait until officers arrived, then crashed about two hours later.
