ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man accused of speeding away from law enforcement is pleading not guilty.

Carlos Blair, 42 of Rochester, is charged with fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, reckless driving, and driving after revocation. Authorities say Blair drove through a red light and then reached speeds of 60 miles per hour to elude law enforcement.

The chase was called off but Blair was stopped and arrested minutes later. He reportedly said he “didn’t feel like going to jail.”

A trial is now set to being on December 17.
