ROCHESTER, Minn. - A man arrested twice in less than five months is pleading guilty.

Mark Allen Harman, 31 of Rochester, entered guilty pleas Wednesday to 5th degree controlled substance crime and fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. He was arrested on December 7, 2017, after a tip from Child Protective Services that Harman was keeping methamphetamine in the prescence of a young child.

Harman was arrested again on April 18 and accused of leading law enforcement on a high-speed chase on March 19. Authorities say he nearly hit a school bus during the pursuit, then abandoned his vehicle and escaped on foot. He was captured after undercover officers saw Harman going into an apartment in the 500 block of Northern Hills Drive.

A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for June 20.
