Deputy maneuver causes driver to spin into ditch.
A report Sunday morning of a vehicle "driving all over the roadway" led to Polk County deputies spotting the vehicle in question, trying to stop it, and subsequently pursuing it between Erskine and McIntosh before eventually arresting the driver.
The suspect, a 36 year old rural rural McIntosh man, is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Tuesday. He had not been identified or formally charged at press time.
After deputies got the call minutes after 9 a.m. Sunday, they spotted the vehicle north of Polk County Highway 35 between Erskine and McIntosh, according to information provided by the PCSO. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated. After a couple miles, according to the PCSO, the suspect swerved at a deputy's vehicle, so deputies implemented a maneuver that caused the suspect's vehicle to spin out and come to rest in the ditch.
The driver, the vehicle's lone occupant, was taken to Essentia Health in Fosston for treatment of injuries. He was later released and brought to the Northwest Regional Corrections Center in Crookston.
