Officer Brad Wubben stopped a vehicle for an equipment violation late one night this past week. The vehicle pulled over and the driver of the vehicle gave Officer Wubben his full name and date of birth.
Officer Wubben returned to his squad and began running computer checks on the driver when he noticed the driver had stepped out of his vehicle. Officer Wubben told the driver to get back in his vehicle and the driver began walking, and then running away from Officer Wubben.
Unfortunately for the fleeing driver, Officer Jessica Swaner was just arriving in the area. Officer Swaner quickly located and arrested the subject, who had only made it about a block away from the traffic stop.
Officers later found a baggie of suspected narcotics near the driver’s seat of the subject’s vehicle. The hapless driver was sent to Dakota County Jail pending multiple traffic and criminal charges including fleeing from an officer and possession of narcotics.
