ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man arrested after a three-hour car chase is pleading not guilty.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office arrested 20-year-old Isaac Joseph Cronin of Brownsdale on October 20 after deputies said they spotted Cronin driving a stolen car. A pursuit hitting speeds of 90 miles per hour followed before deputies said Cronin was stopped in a cul de sac. A Minnesota State Patrol airplane was called in to assist with the chase.

Cronin entered not guilty pleas Tuesday to theft of a motor vehicle, fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, and fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle.

No trial date has been set.

A passenger in the vehicle, Erik Cole, was taken into custody on a felony warrant out of Goodhue County.
