New Hampton man facing drug charges after chase


A New Hampton man faces several drug charges after a Chickasaw County deputy says he led him on a chase Saturday morning.

The deputy says he tried to stop a vehicle near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 165th Street around 1:30 a.m. Saturday for a traffic violation.  The deputy says the driver refused to stop and led him on a short chase.

The driver, who was later identified as 21-year-old Bryan James Schwickerath of New Hampton, was finally stopped and arrested near the intersection of Highway 63 and 160th Street.

Schwickerath is charged with a drug tax stamp violation, eluding law enforcement, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, driving while revoked, no insurance, operation without registration and possession of drug paraphernalia.
