Mankato Police Snag Fleeing Man In Stolen Car

MANKATO – Mankato police have arrested a 34-year-old man after fleeing police in a car later determined to have been stolen.

A citizen called 9-1-1 after seeing a silver Grand Prix swerving and driving on the wrong side of Highway 14.

When an officer tried to stop the westbound car, they say it accelerated and eventually crashed into a steel post at the intersection of Riverfront Drive and May Street.

Jason Ites was taken into custody after he was treated for injuries at Mayo Hospital in Mankato.

Ites also has a Department of Corrections warrant for his arrest.
