Mankato High Speed Chase 30 Oct 12

A Chaska man faces multiple charges in Blue Earth County Court following a high-speed car chase in Mankato over the weekend. Authorities attempted to stop a Ford Escort that was speeding early Saturday morning, but instead of pulling-over, the driver reportedly sped away. The chase reached speeds of upwards of 80 miles-per-hour through residential areas of Mankato before several police officers managed to stop 18-year-old Vincent Lee. He was reportedly combative and refused to cooperate, but was taken into custody and is being held in the Blue Earth County Jail. He’s facing charges of fleeing police in a motor vehicle, obstruction with force and 3rd-degree test refusal.
