A Fargo man faces numerous charges following a chase through Moorhead Thursday night that ended in rural Clay County.

The charges filed Friday in Clay County District Court against Gordon L. Beck, 57, 314 10th Ave. N., include fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle; reckless driving; obstructing the legal process and speeding.

According to a court complaint, Moorhead police attempted to stop an older sport utility vehicle about 9 p.m. Thursday after it was observed speeding and running a red light.

The vehicle did not stop and the driver continued to run red lights. The report said that, at times, it reached speeds of 65 to 70 mph, the complaint said.

Other law enforcement agencies joined the chase, which left the city and ended when the suspect vehicle eventually pulled over at the intersection of Clay County roads 10 and 21.

The complaint said officers had to wrestle the driver, identified in the complaint as Beck, from the vehicle.

Beck made a court appearance Friday and conditions for release were set at $50,000 bond or $5,000 cash bail.
