Two men were arrested following a vehicle chase in Carlton County Monday evening.

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office reported that a 33-year-old Duluth man and a 21-year-old Superior man are being held at the Carlton County Jail pending formal charges.
Authorities were notified at about 5:30 p.m. Monday that a woman with a felony warrant out for her arrest was headed to a Barnum residence, according to the Sheriff’s Office. While searching for the woman, deputies encountered a black Saab believed to be involved in the case, and activated their lights to stop the vehicle.

A vehicle pursuit began after the Saab refused to stop. While attempting to stop the Saab with a precision immobilization technique — more commonly known as a PIT maneuver— the Saab spun around and rammed the squad car, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

A short time later, the vehicle was reported by a passerby as being unoccupied and stopped on the side of northbound Interstate 35 near mile marker 224. A perimeter was set up and a foot search initiated by the Sheriff’s Office, along with the Minnesota State Patrol, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Border Patrol K-9, and Moose Lake, Cloquet and Fond du Lac police departments. The two men were taken into custody with the help of the DNR K-9 and Sheriff’s Office K-9 units.

The Saab had been reported stolen to the Superior Police Department on Monday morning.
