2 arrested after overnight chase in Fargo and Moorhead
The driver fled from officers for the third time in three days.
FARGO — Two people are in the Cass County Jail, after leading both Fargo and Moorhead officers on a chase through both cities, and through a construction zone.
According to city spokesman Gregg Schildberger, this started shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday night, June 22, when Moorhead officers saw a Chevy pickup that had gotten away from Fargo officers in the past two days.
The driver then took off on Interstate 94, exiting on South University Drive, where Fargo officers eventually used tire deflation devices to slow down the pickup.
Police followed the pickup to near the Catalyst Medical Center in Fargo, where the pickup drove through a construction zone, and got stuck in mud, Schildberger said.
The driver, Phillip Murray, 33 — who has no permanent address — is facing charges of fleeing, aggravated reckless endangerment, and driving under suspension.
The passenger, Amy St. John, 30, of Moorhead, is in jail for providing false information to law enforcement, and on an open warrant.
