MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Minot police say they arrested a 22-year-old Stanley man on suspicion of fleeing law enforcement, reckless endangerment and driving under the influence after a short chase in the city.

Police say they tried to stop a pickup truck that committed a traffic violation just after midnight Friday but the truck drove off. The high-speed pursuit ended when the driver turned onto a dead-end road ending at the Souris River dead loop and nearly put the pickup into the river.

The man ran off but was apprehended and arrested a short distance later. Formal charges are pending.
