COPY-Kasson man arrested for leading deputies on pursuit

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- A Kasson man has been arrested after deputies say he stole a car and then lead them on a pursuit.

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office says Brian Rathbun, 44, was spotted driving a Cadillac that was reported stolen from Albert Lea.

Deputies report trying several times to get Rathbun to pull over on County Road 22 and Highway 63, but he refused and only stopped after he lost control and crashed into a ditch on 90th Avenue.

Investigators say Rathbun ran on foot and stopped only at the threat of a K-9 dog.

He faces charges ranging from fleeing in a stolen vehicle, to substance abuse and possession.
