FOREST CITY, Iowa – An Albert Lea man arrested after a high speed chase from southern Minnesota into North Iowa is pleading not guilty.
Michael Anthony Livingston, 31, is charged with eluding and OWI-1st offense. He was arrested in May after a pursuit that law enforcement says started in southern Freeborn County and ended in Lake Mills, Iowa, after Livingston crashed in a field and ran into a pond. Authorities say the chase hit speeds of up to 120 miles per hour.
Law enforcement says it tried to pull Livingston over because he was wanted in connection to a domestic assault earlier in the day.
His trial in Winnebago County is now set to begin on July 18.
