Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A man pulled over for a minor traffic violation is now dealing with a whole lot more. Moorhead Police tried to pull over Patrick Sandland on his motorcycle just before 11:00 last night, but he took off.

Officers chased him at speeds reaching 70 miles an hour, but lost track at the city limits. Other officers later found the motorcycle on its side, but couldn't find the driver. An off duty detective who'd been monitoring the police radio managed to find him.

Sandland is being held on charges of fleeing an officer and 3rd degree DUI.
