A man with multiple warrants was arrested in Nicollet County Friday after a high-speed chase ended with a crash.
A plain clothes Nicollet County Sheriff’s Office investigator spotted the vehicle of George Marten Williamson, 31, on Friday near Family Fresh in St. Peter.
Williamson had three outstanding warrants: one felony in Illinois that listed him as armed and dangerous, a warrant for narcotics in Texas and a warrant for parole violation in Iowa and Nebraska.
The investigator followed Williamson, who eventually saw a marked squad car and began to flee.
Williamson traveled through downtown St. Peter and into several residential neighborhoods, according to the Nicollet County Sheriff’s Office. He then traveled southbound on Highway 169, reaching speeds of more than 100 mph while being pursued by a St. Peter police officer.
Officers terminated the pursuit when Williamson crossed over the median and began traveling south in the northbound lane of Highway 169. Williamson collided with another vehicle before continuing to flee on foot.
He was quickly apprehended by officials from the Nicollet and Le Sueur County sheriff’s departments, along with an investigator from the St. Peter Police Department.
Both Williamson and the driver of the other vehicle were transported to Mayo Clinic Health System with non-critical injuries.
After being released from medical care, Williamson was booked at the Nicollet County Jail on charges of fleeing a peace officer, possession of narcotics and other charges.
