Anthony Devere Seaberg, 26, of Superior, is facing a warrant for his arrest following failures to appear in Carlton County court for charges resulting from a February incident.

The bench warrant, issued April 5 by Carlton County Judge Rebekka Stumme, was requested by the state after Seaberg failed to appear for scheduled omnibus hearings March 29 and April 5.

Seaberg is facing charges of theft of a motor vehicle and fleeing police officers following his Carlton County arrest in February.

PREVIOUSLY: Superior man faces charges after high-speed chase ends with crash on Bong Bridge The man is accused of stealing a vehicle that was left running outside a Moose Lake restaurant and engaging in a high-speed chase with Carlton County law enforcement officers, according to court documents.
According to the criminal complaint, on Feb. 17, Seaberg allegedly stole a vehicle parked outside Poor Gary's restaurant in Moose Lake, engaging in a high-speed chase with authorities along Interstate 35. The pursuit ended when the stolen vehicle crashed into a cement barrier on the Bong Bridge.

Following the crash, the driver — later identified as Seaberg — jumped 35 feet from the bridge in an attempt to evade police. He was later apprehended when Duluth police officers received a tip from a security guard.


He did not suffer any noticeable injuries when he jumped from the bridge, according to Carlton County Sheriff Kelly Lake.

After a short stint in the Carlton County Jail, Seaberg was expedited to Douglas County to face Wisconsin charges stemming from a parole violation.

Since being released from the Douglas County Jail, he has failed to appear in Carlton County District Court, according to Chief Deputy Carlton County Attorney Jeffrey Boucher.

Boucher said he last spoke with Seaberg in late March, when he called in late to a scheduled court appearance and provided Boucher with a current address.

Boucher has since forwarded the address to public defender Kevin Cornwell, who said he tried to contact Seaberg by email March 29 and by phone March 31, both with no response.

The warrant seeks the immediate arrest of Seaberg, with bail set at $3,000.
