Kandiyohi County

 
WILLMAR - A 27-year-old St. Cloud made his first appearance Tuesday on felony charges of receiving stolen property and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle for allegedly fleeing from Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s deputies Saturday in a stolen vehicle.
Shane Kenneth Halverson, 27, of St. Cloud also faces a gross misdemeanor charge of driving after cancellation and a misdemeanor charge of careless driving. Bail was set Tuesday to $20,000 without conditions and $1,000 with conditions. Halverson will make his next court appearance July 6.
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, a Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office sergeant was parked on Minnesota Highway 23 near Medayto Drive in Spicer with his emergency lights flashing when he heard the revving of an engine and saw a vehicle driving at an increasingly high rate of speed.
The sergeant attempted to catch up with the vehicle, but the driver, later identified as Halverson, appeared to be increasing his distance from the squad car.
The sergeant activated his siren and was eventually able to near Halverson’s vehicle near the intersection 72nd Street Northeast and Highway 23.
Halverson was reportedly traveling at 90 miles per hour in this area and allegedly stuck his head out of his vehicle and began yelling at the sergeant, according to the criminal complaint.
At this time, dispatch reported that the license plate of Halverson’s vehicle matched that of a vehicle stolen from Stearns County.
The sergeant and another deputy continued to pursue Halverson’s vehicle with emergency lights and sirens activated and the vehicle pursuit continued into Willmar.
Willmar Police Department officers deployed stop sticks at the intersection of Trott Avenue and First Street. Halverson reportedly attempted to make an abrupt turn onto Becker Avenue and lost control of his vehicle.
Halverson allegedly exited the vehicle and climbed onto the hood of the sergeant’s squad car. It allegedly appeared that he had the intent to fight or attack others.
A Willmar Police Department officer reportedly deployed his Taser and Halverson was subdued and arrested, according to the criminal complaint.
