MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities in Minneapolis say officers arrested two people Monday afternoon after they fled police in a stolen car and crashed into a fence post on the city’s south side.
The Minneapolis Police Department says the arrests were prompted by a noontime call about someone stealing from a Red Bull truck.
When police attempted to stop the suspect, he fled in a stolen car, leading officers on a short chase in south Minneapolis.
After crashing into a fence post, the suspect and his passenger, a woman, attempted to run away.
Officers apprehended both of them. The driver was arrested on suspicion of auto theft.
The other passenger was also arrested. Police say she was brought to a hospital because she complained of pain in her knee.
