Bailey sentenced to prison for selling meth

In April 2012, a Morrison Count deputy clocked a vehicle driven by Bailey at 72 miles per hour on Haven Road in Little Falls. When the emergency lights were activated, Bailey braked, entered a ditch, then a driveway and made a left turn into a field where it struck a tree. Bailey then got out of the car and began running.

Bailey, whose driving privileges had been canceled, was sentenced to 21 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud for both charges, to be served concurrently, and fined $490 for the sale of drugs and $135 for fleeing the peace officer.
