A Twin Cities man was arrested following an I-94 pursuit yesterday evening.
32-year-old Jay Kyle Roberts, of Brooklyn Park, was stopped by a state trooper on the freeway near West Union but fled west on the highway. Osakis police and Douglas County sheriff’s deputies joined the chase near Alexandria. Roberts avoided stop sticks but came to rest after Osakis police conducted a Pursuit Intervention Tactic maneuver near the Garfield exchange. Roberts fled on foot into a swamp and was arrested without incident.
Roberts was taken to the Douglas County jail for fleeing in a motor vehicle, fleeing on foot, driving after cancellation, and felony arrest warrant.
Two passengers in the car were released after law enforcement determined they had committed no crime.
