Man arrested in Brookings for resisting arrest and fleeing



 
A Hartford man is facing charges in two counties after his arrest in
Brookings.
 
Police Lt. Derrick Powers says they recieved information of a
stolen vehicle in Colman by a suspect who may be headed to
Brookings.
 
He says they dispatched an officer to a possible location and
on the way there, the officer spotted the vehicle, turned around
and made a traffic stop on Sixth Ave. S. 
 
Powers says the driver got out and was placed under arrest 
but began to resist when the officer attempted to handcuff him.
The man would not comply and tried to run away.  After a
brief struggle, the suspect was taken to the ground and brought
under control until backup arrived.
 
The 23-year-old man has been charged with resisting arrest and
fleeing from an officer and will also likely face charges in Moody 
County for the stolen vehicle.
