Case Number: 20003975

Date Reported: 04/15/2020 at 7:59 PM

Incident: Agency Assist/Pursuit

Location: Interstate 94; Douglas County

Suspect Information:

Jay Kyle Roberts, Age 42 of Brooklyn Park, MN

Case Details:

On the above date and time, Douglas County Deputies assisted the MN State Patrol and the Osakis Police Department with a pursuit on Interstate 94. The suspect vehicle was stopped by a MN State Trooper for a traffic violation near West Union but fled westbound on I-94 during the traffic stop. The Osakis Police Department joined the pursuit as it continued west on I-94 and Douglas County Deputies joined the pursuit near Alexandria. The suspect vehicle avoided tire deflating "stop sticks" but came to rest after the Osakis Police Officer conducted a Pursuit Intervention Tactic (PIT) maneuver near the Garfield interchange. The driver, Jay Kyle Roberts, fled on foot into a nearby swamp but was soon arrested without incident. He was transported to the Douglas County Jail for fleeing in a motor vehicle, fleeing on foot, driving after cancelation-inimical to public safety, and for a felony arrest warrant. The two passengers in the vehicle were released after law enforcement determined they didn't commit any crimes.

Officer: Sgt. Ron Boyden, #209
