In the most recent edition of the Faribault Police Department's The Point After readers learn running from the police isn't a great idea, especially when they are able to run you down on foot after giving you a head start. That's at least what happened to one area man, who was evading officers looking to arrest him on a Department of Corrections warrant earlier this week.

For more on this speedy Faribault officer, we turn to The Point After:

On Wednesday, January 19th, Officers DJ Skluzacek, Tyler Wilson, Brandon McCarthy, and Sergeant Eric Sammon responded to a local motel in an attempt to arrest Michael Fitzherbert, 23. Fitzherbert was the subject of a Department of Corrections warrant. Ofc. Skluzacek and Sgt. Sammon entered the motel to locate Fitzherbert, while the others waited outside. A short time later, Ofc. Wilson saw Fitzherbert exiting the motel, and began to run when he saw the squad cars. Fitzherbert continued to run from Ofc. Wilson, who caught up to him. Ofc. Wilson ordered Fitzherbert to stop and displayed his Taser, at which time Fitzherbert complied. Fitzherbert was arrested without further incident and jailed. In addition to the warrant, Fitzherbert was cited for Fleeing an Officer on Foot and Obstruction of Legal Process.

So do we call Wilson wheels now after running down the suspect?
