Rural Menahga woman arrested after high-speed chase
By Bryce Haugen / Wadena Pioneer Journal
Wadena County Sheriff's Office arrested a rural Menahga woman after she allegedly fled authorities in her vehicle, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour Friday evening.
A Minnesota State Trooper employed stop sticks, safely disabling a tire. The vehicle came to a stop a short time later. Nobody was injured and no other property was damaged during the pursuit.
Hodgden was taken into custody without further incident. A 7-year-old child was later found to be in the vehicle with Hodgden and was taken to a family member’s residence unharmed. Hodgden is currently in the Wadena County jail, held on suspicion of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and DWI test refusal.
Wadena and Verndale Police Departments assisted the sheriff's office during the incident.Explore related t
