On Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 at 4:25 pm a deputy observed a motorcycle traveling at 99 mph eastbound on County Road 90 west of Highway 22. The deputy attempted a traffic stop, but the rider fled and attempted to elude law enforcement on side roads towards St. Clair.
Members of the St. Clair Fire Department encountered the suspect near the St. Clair School after he abandoned his motorcycle. Deputies arrested 21-year-old Raymond Ervin Koberg Jr. of Mankato and transported him to jail on related charges.
Raymond Koberg Jr. remains in custody on charges of fleeing police, reckless driving and speed with the 2007 Suzuki GSX R600 he was riding now pending forfeiture. The original offense of speed would have likely resulted in a misdemeanor traffic citation.
