Deputy, dog run down chase suspect

Post-Bulletin, Rochester MN

A 25-year-old Rochester man is in custody and faces felony charges after leading police on a chase.

Deputy Rich Carmack was traveling north in the 4000 block of U.S. 63 when a car quickly came up behind him and passed, traveling at 80 to 95 mph, according to Olmsted County sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Behrns. Carmack turned on his sirens and lights, but the driver didn’t stop.

The driver turned off the highway at Golden Hill School north of Wal-Mart, stopped in the Auto Financing parking lot and hit a commercial trash bin.

The driver tried to run, but Carmack and his police dog, Cash, stopped him. The dog bit the man on the right arm. He was treated at Saint Marys Hospital before going to jail.
