MANKATO, MN- A Maple Grove man is in Blue Earth County Jail after a late night police chase in Mankato.

According to police, a call came in about a van being driven by 23-year-old Patrick Scott Mordhorst, who was swerving on Madison Avenue, and had already hit a light pole.

Police spotted the vehicle headed north on highway 169, and say Mordhorst refused to stop, instead turning on to Highway 14 east.

The vehicle exited on 3rd Avenue, pulling over into a nearby parking lot before officers arrested him.

Mordhorst appeared to be under the influence and could face charges of fleeing police and obstruction with force, among others.
