A Faribault man is in the Blue Earth County Jail after an early-morning police chase Saturday that started at U.S. Highway 14 and Riverfront Drive.
Mankato Department of Public Safety Commander Dan Schisel said it started when 28- year-old Tethloac Chut nearly hit a cruiser. “An officer was on routine patrol when a vehicle almost struck his vehicle,” he explained, “That officer then attempted to do a traffic stop on the vehicle.”
Schisel said the chase continued until Chut reached the home of someone he knew, “And at that point, the officer completed a felony stop on the vehicle and the individual was taken into custody without incident.”
“The suspect is being charged with fleeing police in a motor vehicle, fourth and third degree DWI, and test refusal and was placed in the Blue Earth County Justice Center,” Schisel said.
