Rochester, Minn. – A man who ran from police ingested a large amount of methamphetamine before being arrested and will be transported to jail after he’s released from the hospital.
Rochester police say 24-year-old Michael Bunnell was seen driving without a license and a traffic stop took place in the area of 14th St. and Assisi Dr. NW around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Bunnell fled and a short purist ensued before it was called off due to safety concerns.
About 45 minutes later, his car was found running unoccupied and police learned he ran into a residence at 915 13th Ave. NW.
He had 16 grams of meth and some marijuana in his possession.
Bunnell will be charged with fleeing in a motor vehicle, 2nd-degree sales of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and other minor traffic and drug charges.
