Mankato Man Car Chase Arrest 10 Mar 14

A Mankato man is in custody after leading police on a high-speed car chase through Mankato Thursday night. The chase began shortly after midnight when authorities were called out to a domestic assault incident on East Elm Street in Mankato and the suspect, 32 year old Archester Rodgers Jr fled from the scene. The ensuing chase reached speeds of 70 miles-per-hour through residential areas and on Riverfront Drive before Rodgers crashed his vehicle in a ditch just outside the city and was arrested. He’s facing charges of domestic assault, fleeing police in a motor vehicle, and driving under the influence.
