JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man accused of leading law enforcement officers on a high-speed chase in and around Jamestown is facing a host of charges.

A Stutsman County sheriff’s deputy spotted a vehicle suspecting of stealing gas from a station in Jamestown about 1 a.m. Thursday. The vehicle fled from a parking lot not far from the gas station.

KQDJ reports police chased the suspected vehicle through residential neighborhoods in Jamestown where it crashed into a fence and just kept on going. Authorities say speeds exceeded 100 mph as the suspect fled on Highway 281 out of Jamestown before eventually going off road and getting stuck in a slough.

The 24-year-old driver was arrested and taken to the Stutsman County Correctional Center.
