Flee From Custody
A Sauk Rapids man fought police officers, deputies and staff at St. Cloud Hospital after being arrested Saturday afternoon. Shawn Thomas Iees, 26, was spotted by Stearns County deputies and St. Cloud Police officers just before 2 p.m. while walking on Veteran’s Drive near 24th Avenue North in St. Cloud, according to the Stearns County Sheriff’s office. Officers attempted to stop Iees, who has three outstanding warrants, but he fled, leading to a brief foot chase.
A stun gun was used to detain a Brooklyn Center man after he attempted to flee from custody during a probation violation hearing at the Benton County Court Facility on Thursday morning. Dontae Marcus Frazier, 36, had just been sentenced to 86 months in prison and was about to be taken into custody when he fled the courtroom at about 11:10 a.m. Benton County bailiffs and County Attorney Phil Miller stopped Frazier in a hallway, and a stun gun was soon used to detain him.
