Law enforcement officers arrest driver, 15, after high-speed pursuit

WILLMAR — A 15-year-old male driver was arrested and is being held on various charges after leading a Kandiyohi County sheriff’s deputy on a high-speed pursuit early Friday morning.

At about 2:45 a.m., the deputy was completing a traffic stop at Highway 71 and Highway 9 when a southbound 1994 Ford Explorer passed the deputy’s location at more than 80 mph. The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver refused.

A pursuit was initiated and continued south on Highway 71 toward Willmar at speeds approaching 95 mph. The pursuit was terminated on the Highway 71/23 bypass near the Willmar Avenue exit.

The driver was arrested and is being held on charges of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, reckless driving and no Minnesota driver’s license.

Also in the vehicle was a 16-year-old female runaway from Albany.

There were no injuries and one Kandiyohi County squad car received minor damage. The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Willmar Police Department and Willmar Fire Department.
