A 29-year-old suspect led police on a 26-mile chase in Meeker County on Saturday.
According to the Meeker County Sheriff's Office, at 10:45 p.m., a deputy initiated a traffic stop for reckless driving near the intersection of CSAH 15 and CSAH 29 in Collinwood Township.
But the man, from rural Dassel, didn't stop, sparking a chase.
Deputies pursued the suspect for 26 miles before disabling his vehicle using spike strips.
When deputies drove up to the suspect's vehicle, the driver began to get out with a shotgun in his hand, a news release says. A deputy used his squad car to pin the driver's door, preventing him from getting out of the vehicle.
The driver put down the gun after a "brief standoff" and was arrested "without further incident," the sheriff's office says.
The suspect was booked into jail. Formal charges are pending.
