A different deputy then spotted the suspect vehicle in a ditch in the area of Hwy. 63 and 48th St. South a short time after the terminated pursuit and ordered Mohs out of the vehicle.



The report indicates Mohs refused commands to exit the vehicle and was seen smoking meth inside of the vehicle, Parkin said.

She was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital to be evaluated then transported to the Olmsted County Jail. Mohs was arrested on suspicion of Fleeing in a Motor Vehicle, Obstruction of Justice. 

Deputies also obtained a warrant to draw a sample of her blood for testing. She could also face a third-degree DWI charge pending the testing results of the blood sample, Parkin said.
