Meyer tangles with North Hudson police again

North Hudson police came upon a familiar face recently when they stopped a driver for speeding in the 500 block of Sixth St. N.

James S. Meyer, 61, St. Croix Falls, was arrested on March 3 in Washington County after leading authorities on a chase that began in North Hudson, had him driving across a frozen St. Croix River and ended with his arrest in Lakeland. Charges stemming from that incident are still pending.

Meyer has now been ordered to appear on charges of obstructing and bail jumping after he allegedly refused to cooperate during the traffic stop.
