Police say that a man facing several warrants led officers on a chase that ended when the man plowed a stolen vehicle into a snowbank.
The incident began at the Holiday Inn on Hwy. 2 when the man, whose name has not been released, gave false information to police after they responded to a call about possible credit card issue. While officers were trying to determine the man’s identity, he fled on foot from the motel.
A search ensued, then it was discovered that the man allegedly stole a vehicle near the motel that the owner had left running. An eyewitness later reported seeing the vehicle at Spirit Lake Casino, and when police arrived, the man again fled.
The pursuit reportedly ended when the man drove the vehicle into a snowbank, after which he was arrested. He is expected to be charged with giving false information to police, fleeing on foot, fleeing in a motor vehicle and unauthorized use of a vehicle, among other charges.
