A high-speed chase began early Friday morning in Ward County, restarted in rugby where the vehicle was spotted again, and ended at around 4 am on Highway 19 west of Devils Lake. Police stopped the vehicle using spike strips. Two unidentified females and a child were in the vehicle. Both women are now in custody. One of the women is charged with attempted murder, reckless endangerment and fleeing. The other woman is charged with felony child abuse. Near the end of the chase the driver of the vehicle attempted to run over a police officer. The officer sustained minor injuries and was not hospitalized.

Ramsey County States Attorney Lonnie Olson says investigators will have to interview the officers involved and examine footage from patrol car cameras before releasing any more information about the incident.
