ALBERT LEA, Minn. – A man facing charges in North Iowa and southern Minnesota for a high-speed chase is now pleading guilty in both states.
Michael Anthony Livingston, 31 of Albert Lea, entered guilty pleas Tuesday in Freeborn County District court to domestic assault and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. He was arrested on May 22 after a pursuit that hit speeds of 120 miles per hour from southern Freeborn County into east-central Winnebago County.
Law enforcement says it tried to pull over Livingston in connection with a domestic assault reported earlier in the day, but he took off and eventually crashed into a field.
Livingston now has a sentencing date set in Freeborn County on December 21. He previously pleaded guilty to eluding in Winnebago County and his next court appearance there is scheduled for October 24.
