MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A man who led Minneapolis Police on a high-speed chase Wednesday afternoon was eventually stopped and taken into custody, authorities said.

Sgt. Stephen McCarty said the incident started around 4:10 p.m. when police attempted to stop a vehicle in north Minneapolis on a routine traffic violation after the driver had failed to stop at a stop sign near 18th Avenue and 2nd Street North. The driver then took off and the chase ensued.

Authorities said the high-speed chase went across the Mississippi River, then back to the north side of Minneapolis and eventually onto eastbound I-94. The chase ended just before the Lowry Hill tunnel at Interstate 94 and Interstate 394.

The chase started with four or five cars but by the time the vehicle was stopped there were more than 10 squad cars involved. It also presented high danger to motorists leaving work as the evening commute was underway on I-94.

Once the vehicle was stopped an adult male was taken into custody. McCarty said a warrant was out for the man’s arrest, but wouldn’t specify what the warrant was for.

    2. Marlon says:

      Not my cousin, just makes me sick whenever a black male ,is featured on the news, people say racist stuff. Not all blacks are like that. And people need to realize that.

  5. Mike says:

    And where are all the liberals that would defend this piece of trash?

    1. Mike says:

      We are waiting on the sidelines Mike, waiting for the unnecessary bigoted comments. By the way, we don’t defend criminals per say, just the offensively preposterous broad brush racial stereotyping that ingrates are known for.

    Why doesn’t the media state if it was a black male? They will occasionally mention caucasian male. Are we getting too racially sensitive? Say it like it is, homie!

    1. MIke says:

      What difference does it make Richard? Your hatred and bigotry surely doesn’t need fodder to perpetuate what you do best and are clearly known for.

      1. truth says:

        Because we all know blacks commit more crimes than whites.
        Look in the prisons…

  10. Marlo says:

    Plus u look in prisons, not just blacks, Latino and whites really occupy prisons. Can’t wait for another child molestation committed by a white male, see if y’all have the same rude comments. (Jus gayin that’s funny , I remember my first cigarette…….) Internet heroes who would never dare say half of your remarks on the street COWARDS! LMAO
