(ABC 6 News) – UPDATE: A Stewartville man was arrested after a short car chase on 55th Street NW and 18th Avenue in Rochester Thursday.
According to PIO Amanda Grayson, officers took 26-year-old Andrew Bisbee into custody shortly after 3:30 p.m.
Rochester police received a report of an SUV speeding, swerving in and out of traffic, and running red lights on 55th Street, Grayson said.
After crossing 18th Avenue, witnesses told police the SUV flipped over, rolled multiple times, then landed on its tires and continued down 55th Street.
Grayson said Bisbee, the alleged driver, exited the SUV and got into the vehicle of a “Good Samaritan” who stopped to offer help.
However, Grayson claimed Bisbee jumped out of the other vehicle and ran into a field when police arrived on scene.
Rochester police reported that Bisbee was taken into custody after a brief foot chase. They allege that he was not making sense when he spoke, and was in possession of drug paraphernalia.
