Wrobleski Pleads Guilty to Fleeing Police


(KWLM/Willmar MN-) A man with a lengthy criminal record who was arrested in Willmar last month pleaded guilty to running from police yesterday afternoon in Kandiyohi County District Court.

Forty-five-year-old Matthew Wrobleski was wanted on a parole violation and for felon in possession of a firearm when officers cornered him in a home on Southwest 15th Street April 18th.


Police had learned he may be armed and had made threats of violence if confronted by police. Wrobleski tried to run away from the home and was subdued by officers and arrested.

He is charged with fleeing a Peace Officer in Something Other Than a Motor Vehicle.

At a pre-trial hearing yesterday, Wrobleski pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18 days in the Kandiyohi County Jail. He was given credit for the 18 days he has already served since his arrest and will serve no additional jail time.

In 2015, he was convicted in Renville County of a probation violation and was sentenced to 4-and-a-half years in prison.
