A 26-year-old man from Austin has been arrested on pending charges of criminal vehicular homicide after hitting another man with his Chevy Suburban at a social gathering in Freeborn County last weekend.

The Freeborn County Attorney's office told BringMeTheNews that he would most likely be charged by Tuesday.

It's BringMeTheNews' policy to not name a suspect until charges have been filed.

Alex Dylan Tapp was struck by the vehicle in a pasture. He was pronounced dead at the scene after witnesses and first responders attempted CPR.

He was then transported to Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
