After fleeing an officer on a three-wheeler the early evening of Tuesday, Feb. 4, rider Kristopher Allen Kerr, 36, of Isle, was found to be in possession of marijuana. Following the arrest, Kerr’s ATV was discovered to have been stolen, and Kerr’s driving status had been revoked.
According to the criminal complaint:
On the evening of Feb. 4, around 6:21 p.m., an officer with the Isle Police Department observed a three-wheeler traveling down Chiminising Road with inoperable rear lights. When the officer activated his lights, Kerr turned onto East Superior Street, increased speeds and then performed a U-turn past the officer. Kerr then turned onto Moose Drive and entered the ditch. The officer pulled into a driveway along Moose Drive, blocking Kerr’s path.
Kerr was ordered off the ATV and placed under arrest. While searching Kerr following arrest, the officer located a small bag filled with a leafy substance, which tested positive for one gram of marijuana. The officer was informed by dispatch that the ATV was registered as stolen out of Fridley and that Kerr had his driving status revoked.
