Local Police Chase Driver…Slowly
A man leads Fargo and Moorhead police on a wild, slow chase.
Fargo Police first spotted 27–year–old Wyatt Larson driving in the wrong lane just before midnight.
Larson hit multiple stop signs, was weaving and ran a traffic light.
When Fargo officers attempted to pull him over, the chase started.
But it was a slow one, around 15 miles per hour.
Officers alerted Moorhead officers when the chase went over the Main Avenue Bridge.
“It’s always interesting to see either why people will flee a traffic stop or a traffic crash. The vast majority of the time they don’t have a driver’s license or no insurance. They may have a minor misdemeanor warrant. In this case we do know he was intoxicated other than that we don’t know his motive for fleeing,” says Lt. Michael Mitchell with the Fargo Police.
Spike boards were used to stop Larson, but police tell me he actually stopped on his own.
When officers approached Larson, he became violent. Officers had to use pepper spray and a Taser to control him.
Larson will be facing three charges in Moorhead including a DWI, under the influence of meth and obstructing legal process.
Charges are still pending in Fargo.
