Man faces reckless endangerment charge for allegedly driving over 100 mph

FARGO — A Fargo man is accused in Cass County District Court of driving more than 100 mph on Interstate 94 during a chase that occurred on Aug. 30.

According to court documents:

The incident began about 2 p.m. on Aug. 20 when a West Fargo police officer heard over his radio that a vehicle that was a suspect in a chase in Clay County the night before was being chased again and heading toward West Fargo on I-94.

The West Fargo officer continued to monitor the chase on his radio and eventually spotted the suspect vehicle and gave chase himself.

During the pursuit, the suspect vehicle reached speeds of 115 mph and, at one point, it was travelling about 100 mph as it went through a construction zone with one set of wheels on the pavement and one set of wheels in the grass, the court documents state.

The West Fargo officer terminated the pursuit to avoid crashes, but other officers in the chase identified the suspect as Tristin James Monsebroten, who is either 19 or 20 years old.

Court records give Fargo as an address for Monsebroten.

He did not have an attorney as of Monday, Oct. 22.

Monsebroten faces one count of reckless endangerment and one count of fleeing a peace officer, both Class C felonies.
