(Sibley)-- A Minneapolis man faces multiple charges stemming from a high speed pursuit Friday that began in southwest Minnesota and ended in Sibley. 

A Nobles county sheriff's deputy engaged in a pursuit of a vehicle traveling 120 mph. As the pursuit approached Sibley, an Osceola county deputy observed the vehicle traveling 98 mph in a 55 mph zone.

Authorities say the driver, 34-year-old Michael Hangman of Minneapolis, was found hiding in the garage of that residence and was taken into custody.

Witnesses in Minnesota reported seeing Hangman allegedly fire a handgun out of the vehicle before the pursuit began. Osceola county deputies found a sawed-off 22 gauge shotgun behind the driver's seat of the vehicle along with two baggies with what's believed to be marijuana, a scale with methamphetamine residue and a package of new baggies.

Hangman was charged with eluding, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance marijuana with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance...methamphetamine, speeding and no valid driver's license. 

Hangman was booked into the Osceola county jail on a $10,000 cash or surety bond.
