Fleeing a Peace Officer in St. Cloud

Attorney Handling Stearns County Eluding a Police Officer Cases

When a police officer turns on his squad car lights to stop a vehicle, the driver of that vehicle is required to pull over and stop immediately. Unfortunately, some drivers don't stop because of panic or fear. When these people are caught, they are charged with the original crime. They also face an additional charge that is often more serious than the original charge: Fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. At the Minnesota law firm of Michael L. Samuelson, we can use our more than 30 years of experience to defend against these charges.

Fleeing a Peace Officer in a Motor Vehicle

When a person is stopped for DWI/DUI or another traffic violation, the temptation to try to escape can become overwhelming. A rash decision is made, and the end result is an additional charge: Fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, this charge may be even more serious than the misdemeanor traffic violation that caused the stop in the first place. It is a felony and comes with serious penalties if it results in a conviction.
