WILLISTON -- A Dickinson man reached speeds of more than 120 mph while leading officers on a 63-mile car chase early Monday morning in McKenzie County, police say.

Kasey Brown, 26, was eventually stopped and charged with reckless endangerment, fleeing a police officer, fraudulent practices in urine testing, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and refusing to submit to a chemical test.

Brown allegedly sped away from a deputy who tried to pull him over after noticing that he’d crossed the centerline on Highway 85 in Arnegard just before 2 a.m. The ensuing pursuit included stretches of gravel road, highway, and county roads 30, 27 and 34, and hovered between speeds of 80 miles per hour to “well over 121 miles per hour,” according to court documents.

Police managed to pull Brown over on 16th Street NW in Williston. He allegedly refused all tests, but appeared intoxicated. An open alcoholic beverage was found in the car, along with a container of synthetic urine, according to authorities.
