Friday News Update (5/19)
Welcome to your news update.
HIGH SPEED CHASE
A 52-year-old man has been arrested after leading police on a high-speed chase in a stolen car early Friday morning.
Just before 2:00, police tried to pull over Nils Njus on I-94 near the 8th Street exit in Moorhead.
When officers were walking to the car, Njus took off.
Speeds reached between 90 and 100 MPH during the chase.
Eventually, Njus pulled off and ditched his car just off the 20th Street South interchange.
Authorities found meth inside the car and determined the vehicle was stolen.
Around 4:30, police learned the suspect was at a Fargo hotel.
He was arrested and booked into Cass County Jail.
He's facing felony fleeing of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, felony controlled substance possession of methamphetamine, and several other offenses.
Along with the grueling miles, runners in this weekend's Fargo Marathon will also have to deal with some cold, wet weather.
If you're running, try layering clothing you can shed during the race.
Anti-chafing products might be necessary with wet conditions.
It shouldn't be the harshest Fargo Marathon.
In 2005, racers faced snow, rain, wind and freezing temperatures.
Running coaches say the weather is all part of the road race experience.
The Hero 5K run and walk starts at 6:30 tonight.
PARKING RESTRICTIONS POSTED
Even if you're not running in races this weekend, you'll want to avoid certain roads.
Fargo Police have posted signs along the marathon route.
They stake out more than 26.2 miles of no parking zones.
Restrictions start Friday and go through Saturday.
