Man arrested after May 30 police chase in Golden Valley

A man was arrested, and taken to the hospital for treatment of what was suspected to be methamphetamine ingestion, after a May 30 police chase along Interstate 394 and Highway 100.

According to the State Patrol, at approximately 3 p.m., a trooper observed a vehicle driving erratically eastbound on Interstate 394 and General Mills Boulevard. The trooper attempted to stop the driver, but the driver fled, driving erratically, crossing several lanes and jumping curbs. The suspect fled northbound on Highway 100.

The tires on the trooper’s squad car were ruptured, so the officer’s pursuit ended. A traffic camera captured images of the vehicle traveling northbound, striking one vehicle and crashing into two vehicles at Duluth Street, according to the patrol. No one was injured.

 

The driver then fled on foot and was located in a Department of Transportation truck.

The investigation is ongoing.
