(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A farmer near the area of the 6900 block of County Road 136 SE, called police from his tractor in the field, saying another tractor was circling him, and wouldn’t let him out of the field.

Olmsted County Sheriff's deputies saw the tractor and put their lights on, trying to stop the tractor from the road. The driver wasn't stopping, so one of the deputies chased the tractor on foot through the field, but the tractor kept going.

The deputy says he believes the driver saw him and didn't stop.

Eventually, the tractor driver did stop and was arrested for 3rd degree DWI.
