ROCHESTER, Minn. – A 90 mile an hour chase results in probation for a Brownsdale man.

Isaac Joseph Cronin, 20, was sentenced Tuesday to four years of supervised probation and must do 105 hours of community work service or pay a $1,050 fine. He was arrested in October 2017 and charged with theft of a motor vehicle and two counts of fleeing a peace officer.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy saw Cronin driving a stolen pickup truck, which led to a high-speed chase. Cronin eventually abandoned the truck along Weatherhill Road SW and was caught in a wooded area.

He ultimately pleaded guilty to one count of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle.
