MOORHEAD - A West Fargo motorcyclist accused of reaching 155 mph in trying to outrun police has been ordered to serve 30 days in jail and pay $1,085 in fines and fees, according to Clay County District Court documents.
Dustyn Lee Galbreath, 21, was sentenced Monday, Jan. 29, by Judge Galen Vaa. Galbreath pleaded guilty in November to a felony charge of fleeing a police officer.
Galbreath was arrested July 16 after a high-speed chase that lasted about 20 minutes.
Vaa ordered Galbreath to serve 30 days in jail, less one day already served, and to spend three years on supervised probation, court documents said.
However, the judge also ordered a stay of adjudication, which means that if Galbreath follows the rules of his probation, a conviction for the charge will not be entered into his record, a court official said.
According to law enforcement reports:
The afternoon of July 16, a Clay County sheriff's deputy tried to pull over Galbreath and another motorcyclist on County Road 10 in rural east Clay County, but the riders got too far ahead to stop.
Later, another officer pulled behind the motorcyclists and tried to stop them again. The pair sped off with authorities in pursuit.
The chase brought them into Sabin and finally Moorhead, where Galbreath pulled over and was arrested. The other rider escaped.
