St. Louis County Sheriff's Deputies engaged in a vehicle pursuit after a vehicle with no license plate was observed traveling in excess of 90 miles an hour westbound along Martin Road Thursday evening.
The vehicle was traveling directly through intersection and traffic control devices. The vehicle continued even after the initial attempt to have them stop. The driving was considered an imminent threat to public safety.
The pursuit continued to Floodwood, Minnesota and eventually southbound along Hwy 73 into Carlton County, where a Carlton County Deputy was able to deploy a tire deflation device to bring the pursuit to an end.
The driver was identified as Sean Patrick Saylor Jr., 23, of Duluth. Saylor has a long history of police contact.
The vehicle Saylor was driving was recently reported stolen from the City of Hermantown and had fled from Duluth Police Officers the previous evening.
