Tuesday, March 30, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office answered a driving complaint in the city of Rockville. While deputies were looking for the car named in the complaint, they saw a car stopped at the entrance of a cemetery in Rockville. Deputies tried to make contact with the driver, who then drove around them and went east on First Street toward County Road 139. The driver tried a left turn to go north on County Road 139 and failed to make the turn, striking a tree. The driver was identified as John Robert Post, age 27 of St. Cloud. Post refused to submit to field sobriety testing and later failed to provide a chemical test when it was requested from him. He was arrested and brought to the Stearns County Jail. He was held on charges of fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, second degree test refusal, third degree DWI and open container in a motor vehicle.
