A Dodge Center man remains in the Steele County Detention Center after allegedly fleeing a peace officer on April 13.
The defendant, Michael Paul Noble Jr. made his first court appearance on Tuesday, April 15, on one felony count of Fleeing a Peace Officer. During his hearing the Honorable Judge Jodi Williamson set unconditional bail for Noble at $20,000 with no conditional bail option at this time.
According the criminal complaint, on April 13, Deputy David Skadson observed a vehicle parked on the shoulder of 650th St. off of County Road 15. Skadson observed an individual out of the vehicle on the passenger side of the vehicle. The complaint states, Skadson stopped to check on the welfare of the individual and when he got out of his squad car, the individual got back into the vehicle and took off, escalating to a speed of 75 mph on the gravel road. The complaint states, Skadson activated his lights and sirens and pursued the vehicle, which at one point reached a speed of 100 mph, ran through three stop signs and took his vehicle off road in an attempt to escape.
Noble was eventually arrested and taken into custody without further incident.
He will appear in court again on April 23, 2014 at 9 a.m.
