Man Steals Police Car, Leads Officers on Chase
MANKATO (AP) - Authorities say a man in a stolen police car led officers from several agencies on a chase through southern Minnesota.
Mankato officers went to a residence Thursday to arrest the 38-year-old man on an outstanding warrant. Officials say the man stole a police vehicle and led officers from Mankato, sheriff's deputies from Blue Earth and Waseca counties and State Patrol troopers on a 23-mile chase.
The pursuit ended near Waldorf when the man drove over spike sticks, deflating the vehicle's tires. The driver tried to flee on foot but was captured a short distance away. He's being held in the Blue Earth County Jail.
