US v. Tyler, No. 08-3574

District court's sentencing based on defendant's prior conviction is vacated and remanded where Minnesota's crime of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle does not constitute a crime of violence under the Sentencing Guidelines and the district court erred in sentencing defendant as a career offender and thus improperly calculated his offense level and Guidelines range, which constitutes a significant procedural error.
