ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man arrested after law enforcement said he sped through Rochester at over 100 miles per hour has been sentenced.
25-year-old Kyle Charles Lentz pleaded guilty to fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle for an incident on August 23. After a call of a vehicle speeding on Broadway Avenue, an Olmsted County sheriff’s deputy caught up with Lentz at 37th Street and East River Road. The West Concord man reportedly drove away at 131 miles an hour but was caught when he had to slow for traffic near the intersection with 18th Avenue NW.
Lentz was taken into custody after the deputy approached his vehicle at gun point.
On Monday, he was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, 18 days of electronic home monitoring, and must either pay a $1,000 fine or perform 100 hours of community work service.
