ALBERT LEA, Minn. – A man arrested after a cross-border high speed chase is sentenced in southern Minnesota.

Michael Anthony Livingston, 31 of Albert Lea, pleaded guilty in Freeborn County District Court to fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and domestic assault. He was arrested on May 22 after a 120 mile per hour pursuit that stretched from southern Freeborn County into east-central Winnebago County.

Law enforcement tried to pull Livingston over after a report of domestic assault but he sped away and eventually crashed into a field.

Livingston was sentenced Friday to three years of probation.

He also pleaded guilty to eluding in Winnebago County but his sentencing there is still pending.
