PEQUOT LAKES-A 34-year-old Brainerd man was arrested following a disturbance in Pequot Lakes Monday, May 27.
The Pequot Lakes Police Department responded to the call just after 3:30 p.m. Monday on the intersection of South Sluetter Road and County Road 168, where a 23-year-old woman said a man threatened to roll the SUV he was driving in an attempt to kill both of them. The woman was able to exit the vehicle, at which time the suspect drove toward her several times, slamming on the brakes and stopping just before hitting her.
The suspect then drove the SUV about 100 yards and intentionally rolled the vehicle. He fled on foot, and police conducted an extensive search before a resident on South Sluetter Road observed the suspect fleeing from a camper. The Crow Wing County Drone Team and Brainerd K-9 tracked and located him hiding under a deck at a nearby residence.
The suspect was taken into custody and arrested for first-degree assault, fourth-degree burglary, theft, careless driving, driving after revocation, fleeing a peace officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and a previous felony warrant for escaping custody. He remains in the Crow Wing County Jail awaiting formal charges.
The Pequot Lakes Police Department was also assisted by the Breezy Point Police Department, Nisswa Police Department, Lake Shore Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol Air Wing, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office.
