Gopher Linebacker May Face Felony Charges

University of Minnesota linebacker Gary Tinsley faces criminal charges after fleeing police this weekend on a moped, Kare 11 said.

Tinsley, 20, faces felony counts for fleeing police, driving while intoxicated and reckless driving, Star Tribune said.

A Minneapolis police lieutenant saw Tinsley and another person driving mopeds the wrong way down a one-way street. The lieutenant tried to stop the riders, but they fled-- driving through yards and on sidewalks, the Minneapolis Police said.

Tinsley was caught, but the other man was not found, the Minneapolis Police said.

Tinsley was booked and taken to Hennepin County jail, Kare 11 said.
