Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - A man is behind bars held on four separate charges after rolling his car and fleeing police in Moorhead over the weekend.

35-year-old Galen Littlewind is charged with DWI, refusal to submit to chemical testing, fleeing the scene of an accident, and driving with a revoked license.

Littlewind flipped his SUV while traveling east on I-94 around 3:30 Saturday afternoon, causing traffic to back up.

Both he and a passenger ran from the wreck, Littlewind arrested in Moorhead later that day.

Chris Carey, Moorhead Police: “We don't know the major contributing factor, other than alcohol, because it's a one vehicle crash. We don't know if there was inattentive driving. We're not getting a lot of cooperation from the driver. There's nothing clear-cut, other than the alcohol.”

At his time of arrest, Littlewind had two outstanding warrants in Clay County and several previous convictions of fleeing officers and obstructing the legal process.
