DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — A 27-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were arrested on Tuesday after a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle in Becker County.

Edward Jonathon Beaulieu of Detroit Lakes was injured after driving the vehicle in a high-speed chase that reached up to 100 mph across 12 miles on rural roads, according to the sheriff's office. His passenger, Kalysta Lee Ann Harrell of Nisswa, was arrested later after a police dog tracked her down after the chase ended on North Cotton Lake Road.

Beaulieu was arrested shortly after he also fled on foot and was taken to Essentia-St. Mary's Hospital with minor injuries, treated and taken to the Becker County Jail where he faces charges of receiving stolen property and fleeing a peace officer, according to the sheriff's office.

Harrell was arrested on charges of receiving stolen property, fleeing on foot and a felony warrant for first-degree criminal damage to property, said the sheriff's office. She also had several other warrants for her arrest.

The sheriff's department was alerted to the pair when they were notified that it appeared a man was asleep behind the wheel while parked in the driving lane on 220th Street in Detroit Township where the chase began, said the sheriff's department.
