ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of violating a restraining order by entering a woman’s house and giving her a pipe was eventually arrested after fleeing police and rolling a vehicle.

After giving the woman a plumbing pipe, Berg was located around 4:40 on Monday in a vehicle near 4th St. and 10th Ave. SE.
