The Hennepin County Attorney's Office has filed felony charges against a Mound man after he .
Joshua Nerison, 29, was arrested the night of June 6 after leading police on a short chase through Mound. A police officer attempted to pull Nerison's motorcycle over for speeding on Bartlett Boulevard when, according to court documents, Nerison began to pull over but suddenly accelerated toward Wilshire Boulevard.
A short chase ensued, and Nerison lost control of the motorcycle on Montclair Lane and crashed. Detective Dan Niccum writes in the criminal complaint filed last week that Nerison proceeded to flee on foot.
Police caught up with Nerison as he tried to climb a fence, and a struggle began. The criminal complaint says Nerison managed to break free and begin running again but fell while trying to run through a wooded ditch.
An officer deployed his taser, striking Nerison in the stomach, and he was placed under arrest.
Nerison faces one count felony charge of fleeing from a police officer and one gross misdemeanor charge of obstructing the legal process. He could spend up to three years in jail if convicted and given the maximun sentence.
