NU man brushes off taser wire, later found at home

Faces two charges

NEW ULM — A 28-year-old New Ulm man faces two charges after running away from police, then pushing a taser wire away in an alley near the B&J Laundromat June 30.

Misdemeanor charges of evading a peace officer and driving after revocation were filed in Brown County District Court Monday against Adam J. Selbrade-Bryan, 823 N. Spring St..

According to the complaint, New Ulm Police were at a stop sign at Center and German Street at 6:25 a.m., June 30 when they saw a white SUV traveling north on the 100 block of N. German Street. Police were aware the vehicle was usually driven by Selbrade-Bryan, followed it and stopped him after he turned into an alley by the B&J Laundromat.

Selbrade-Bryan exited the vehicle, police told him to show his hands and told him he had an active warrant.

“I can’t go to jail,” he replied and took off running.

Police yelled “stop” but he continued to run before he was tasered. Selbrade-Bryan pushed the taser wire away and took off running again, eluding police.

He was later found at his residence. A check of his driver’s license status indicated his driver’s license was revoked.

Selbrade-Bryan was summoned to appear in court at 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 8.
