The Blue Earth County Attorney’s Office unknowingly files charges against a man who has died.
According to court documents, 26-year-old Jesse Shoemaker fled from Mankato Police who were attempting to arrest him back on August 1 at a business on Madison Avenue.
The criminal complaint alleges Shoemaker drove away at high speeds.
The documents go on to say that police officers in Rogers attempted to stop him as well.
The vehicle got away but was soon after found unoccupied on a road near Maple Grove.
His body was recovered from the lake early the next morning.
Blue Earth County says the charges will be dropped.
