Preston/Lanesboro Police Chief Matt Schultz and Fillmore County Deputy John DeGeorge were called to a scene in Rushford for a domestic assault incident on Monday, September 12. Suspect Kyle Gilow, age 21 of Winona, fled from Rushford Police Chief Sam Stensgard in his vehicle. At that point, DeGeorge got into his vehicle and began pursuing Gilow.

According to DeGeorge, the chase reached high speeds at some points, and went through Rushford into Winona County. One of the squad cars pursuing him became disabled and they lost site of him for a short time.

A state patrol helicopter located the suspect's car in a cornfield, and a search turned up nothing. He had fled on foot, and ended up in Winona County, where he turned himself in.

DeGeorge said Gilow is currently at the Mower County Jail in Austin, as there was also a warrant out for his arrest for burglary in Mower County. He will face charges of fleeing a peace officer, a felony, along with domestic abuse charges, and possible charges in Winona County as well.
