ROCHESTER, Minn. - A wanted man is in custody after giving authorities a fake name before a deputy realized he had a felony warrant for his arrest.
It happened Thursday in the 1000 block of 9th Ave. SE. when a vehicle was stopped for expired registration.
Once the deputy told 33-year-old Andre Chaplin was under arrest, the man fled on foot before he was caught.
He’s facing charges of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, fleeing an officer on foot, giving a false name and multiple traffic violations.
