Buck Otto White arrested during car chase involving gun shots, police say
Buck Otto White
Shots were fired in Northeast Minneapolis Wednesday after officers and U.S. Marshals tried to pull over a fugitive named Buck Otto White, according to police.
"He took off and Holy Hannah we were off to the races," said John Elder, a police spokesman.
The chase ended when White crashed his car into a snow embankment in the 3300 block of Como Avenue NE and was taken to the hospital, then custody, Elder said. None of the officers or Marshals involved in the pursuit were injured, he added.
Details are still emerging on who actually fired a gun.
The St. Peter Herald reported earlier this year about a two-hour manhunt involving White, ending in a wooded area in New Prague. Officers confiscated several shotguns and rifles, according to the indictment.
We'll update this as it develops. The U.S. Marshals district office could not be reached for immediate comment.
