Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A high speed chase ended with a man behind bars and a squad car in the body shop.
Anthony Harris – Deputy Sheriff: "It was a normal night of patrolling around the county."
Until an early morning call got his heart pumping.
Anthony Harris: "It's one of the fun calls you like going on."
It was a traffic stop, turned hot pursuit - and this one wasn't slowing down.
Anthony Harris: "In the beginning I heard speeds from 70 up to 85 miles per hour."
The chase went from West Fargo into Fargo, then onto interstate 94.
Anthony Harris: "It was patches of glare ice, wet roads. It wasn't a very good night to be chasing somebody."
After making it through three spike strips the chase didn't end until officials used a pit maneuver.
Anthony Harris: "Generally, when you do the pit maneuver is spins them out and disables the vehicle so the vehicle stops."
Harris nailed it, and so did his squad.
Anthony Harris: "Both the rear and front headlight, probably a total of $300-$500."
The car suffered a good amount of damage, but the suspect left without a mark.
Bill Bergquist – Clay County Sheriff: "He was not injured by any means. He just jumped out and ran, and then they finally chased him down."
This wasn't Marc Singleton's first run in with the law. He was racing from charges in Cass, Clay and Wilkin counties.
Bill Bergquist: "He has had other citations by the same deputy that had ended up stopping him."
Now he faces a few more, slapped with fleeing, DWI and assault charges too.
It might have started as a normal night on the job, but ended a success for the officer's involved.
Anthony Harris: "He was down on three tires of just the rims, so sparks were flying.'"
Singleton will be responsible for the damages caused. He's awaiting formal charges in the Clay County Jail.
