St. Clair Man Charged: 100 MPH Police Chase, 18 Month Old Daughter In Car


A 21-year-old man from St. Clair has been charged for allegedly leading police on a high speed chase with his daughter in his car.

Sheldan Christian Luna is accused of fleeing police and child endangerment. Additional charges could be added once blood tests come back, as authorities believe he was under the influence of drugs at the time.


Authorities say Luna was clocked going 112 MPH around 11:00 Friday night on Waseca County Road 2 near Janesville and he refused to pull over. The chase went into Blue Earth County and through St. Clair and finally ended just south of Mankato when police were able to knock his car into a ditch with a PIT maneuver as he tried to turn onto Monks Avenue.

Speeds during the chase went as high as 115 MPH.

Luna was taken into custody and authorities located his 18-month old daughter in the back seat. The little girl was not hurt and the mother came to get her.

Luna had also been arrested for fleeing police in April and does not currently have a valid license.
