Rochester Man Arrested for Running Stop Sign
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man was arrested over the weekend after running a stop sign - and leading an Olmsted County deputy on a short chase - and for drug possession.
The patrol deputy saw a car driven by 34-year-old Nicholas Hanson run the stop sign at the intersection of 28th St and 40th Ave SE around 7:30 PM Saturday.
The deputy tried to stop the vehicle but Hanson made some evasive turns and increased his speed. He eventually decided to stop. While searching Hanson, the deputy found a bag of suspected methamphetamine in his pocket that weighed just under 2 grams.
The deputy also discovered Hanson's driver's license was revoked.
