Drunk driving charges filed after high-speed chase

A North Dakota driver was arrested after what police described as a high-speed chase. After trying to later flee from police on foot, he was apprehended and arrested. The defendant is currently charged with drunk driving, reckless endangerment and more.

Police say they initially noticed the driver after he ran through a stop sign. However, when the attending officers attempted to initiate a traffic stop, the driver reportedly sped off instead of pulling over to the side of the road. Allegedly traveling at a high rate of speed, he supposedly ran several more stop signs and blew through multiple red traffic lights in his attempt to avoid the authorities.

At some point during the chase he may have lost control of his vehicle, because he ran into the porch of a home and then struck a police vehicle. Leaving his vehicle behind on a ditch he is said to have fled the scene on foot. Police say they followed the man easily enough because of the footsteps he left in the snow, and that no one -- the driver included -- suffered any injuries in the chase or subsequent crash.

Drunk driving charges are serious enough on their own, but the potential criminal consequences may feel even more overwhelming when filed alongside other allegations. North Dakota defendants may want to fully consider their criminal charges, related evidence and additional information before moving forward with any concrete criminal defense decisions. However, in these types of situations time it is often an essential aspect of achieving the best possible outcome, so accomplishing these tasks in a timely manner is important.
