Kyria Roldan, 30, was arrested on charges of fleeing police and no possession of a Minnesota driver’s license, according to the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office.

Freeborn County deputies were called to assist the Lake Mills Police Department at 7:49 a.m. Monday after the woman reportedly refused to pull over for a traffic stop in Lake Mills.

Albert Lea police said the school was notified of the incident, and there was no threat to staff or students.
