A St. Peter man was arrested Thursday night after a brief car chase with police in Mankato. Officers had responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot on South Riverfront Drive at just after 9:30pm Thursday night, but the vehicle reportedly left the scene at a high rate of speed when police arrived. Authorities briefly pursued the vehicle before it pulled over near Highway 169, and 27-year-old Gary Stillwell of St. Peter was placed under arrest. Officials say that 3 children under the age of 6 were found in the vehicle as well. Stillwell is charges of fleeing police in a motor vehicle, driving after revocation, and child endangerment.
