FARGO (KVRR) – The North Dakota Highway Patrol arrested a man Friday after he led authorities on a high-speed chase before he lost control of his vehicle and crashed in Fargo.

Thirty-one-year-old Grant Goodsell of Halstad, Minnesota was arrested for DUI, fleeing, resisting arrest and reckless driving.

A state trooper was parked along I-29 near the 32nd Ave interchange when Goodsell’s vehicle entered I-29 northbound at a high rate of speed.  After the trooper tried to stop Goodsell, he slowed slightly for DOT workers, then quickly accelerated over 100 mph.
