A 24-year-old man is in custody for a second high speed chase in less than a week in Braham.

Zachary Paul Perry was arrested after an early Monday morning chase that covered over 27 miles. Braham police and Isanti County sheriffs started the pursuit around 1:30 a.m when deputies saw Perry driving 95 miles per hour on a motorcycle, according to Braham Police Chief, Robert Knowles.

Knowles tells Red Rock Radio that pursuit went down to Cambridge and then to North Branch. He says Perry went as fast as 120 miles per hour during the chase, which ended when Perry crashed at 372nd Street and Grand Avenue in North Branch. Perry was hospitalized, but was treated and released.

The Isanti County Attorney’s office says Perry is due in court by 3 p.m Tuesday. Police do not know yet why Perry fled and say he suffered only minor injuries.

It is unknown whether or not alcohol was involved.

This is the second arrest for a high speed chase in Braham in five days. James Lind, 20, was arrested after leading police on a six mile chase, resulting in the damage of two squad cars. Read more here.
