  • The Yellow Medicine Sheriff's office reported a man was involved in a police chase in Clarkfield on Wednesday at roughly 4:30 p.m.
    Matthew Nelson, 30, of Clarkfield struggled with a sheriff's deputy trying to arrest him before the car chase began. Nelson was able to escape in his 1985 Chevrolet truck, sparking the subsequent high-speed chase that lasted several miles before ending in a corn and soybean field where he took off on foot. During the chase, a number of articles fell from inside the truck and trailer it was pulling. Law enforcement was unable to find him until the next morning at 11:00 a.m. when they received a call from someone in Clarkfield reporting that Nelson was sleeping at a house in Clarkfield. He was arrested shortly after and is now held in Yellow Medicine County Jail.
