Fergus Falls, Minn. (Valley News Live) - More information on the ‘guns drawn’ situation along Hwy. 210 in Minnesota has come in.

The original call came in around 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 15 to the exit near Fergus Falls.

Before scanner traffic indicated ‘guns drawn,’ dispatchers were talking about a possible police chase along I-94 heading toward Otter Tail County. According to scanner traffic, it was a stolen vehicle.

We’ve received intel from a Todd county deputy that was going to pick up an inmate in OTC when a vehicle came up behind him at high rate of speed. The deputy ran the plates, it was a stolen car out of Wisconsin.

He pulled the vehicle over, and the driver has been taken into custody on active warrants. Law enforcement can’t release his name yet. No weapon on suspect. No officer involved shooting.

Guns were drawn by deputies as standard procedure for a high-level traffic stop.
