A Blaine man was arrested after allegedly leading police on a high-speed chase through the north metro.
A Blaine officer says a car ran through a stop sign near 116th Avenue and Fourth Street around 1:33 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13. The officer tried to pull the driver over but the vehicle sped away onto northbound University Avenue, according to the criminal complaint.
Police say the car ran several stop signs and eventually got to Highway 10, reaching speeds of more than 120 mph during the chase.
The driver eventually stopped when he tried to exit onto I-35W but crashed into the side wall. The man fled on foot and was tracked by a K-9 unit.
The man was identified as 47-year-old Jeremy Bisceglia of Blaine. He told police he was just a passenger in the vehicle and didn’t know who was driving, but police say there was only one person in the car.
Bisceglia has been charged with fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and driving after his license was cancelled. If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison and $5,000 in fines on the fleeing charge and up to 90 days in prison and $1,000 in fines on the license charge.
