A Faribault man has been arrested for fleeing from law enforcement twice, even though he said he was on his way to the Rice County Jail to turn himself in.

Clinton A. Juring, 26, is charged in three criminal complaints filed Monday in Rice County District Court.

The first complaint alleges felony domestic assault and felony fifth degree assault against Juring in a September 7 incident at Juring’s residence.

In the second complaint, Juring is charged with felony first degree assault with deadly force against a peace officer and felony fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle, after Juring attempted to flee a September 22 traffic stop and dragged an officer with his vehicle when the officer caught his arm in the door.

In the third complaint filed against Juring he is charged with felony fifth degree possession of drugs, gross misdemeanor obstruction of legal process and misdemeanor fleeing a peace officer, after Juring fled September 23 traffic stop on foot. In that instance, the driver of the vehicle told officers Juring was going to turn himself in at the jail.

Juring is being held in jail pending $300,000 unconditional bail or $150,000 conditional bail. If convicted of the most serious charge against him, Juring faces 10 to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $30,000.
