A man who evaded authorities in several counties for nearly a week was arrested over the weekend.
Morton County court records show 25-year-old Brandon Kuhn is charged with fleeing police and reckless endangerment, both class C felonies. He is also accused of wearing a mask while committing a crime, a class A misdemeanor, and driving with a suspended license, a class B misdemeanor.
A police affidavit says Kuhn was spotted Saturday night driving a truck in Mandan. Authorities say they tried to pull him over, but he fled, running a red light in the process.
Police say they tracked him down to a locked shed in southeast Mandan. After a standoff, police took him into custody.
The arrest came almost a week after authorities say Kuhn led them on a chase from Bismarck to rural Emmons County, where he fled into a field of sunflowers near Hazelton.
Kuhn was also suspected of stealing a pickup truck from a farm two days later. The truck was found unattended in Mandan later that day.
The sheriff of Emmons County says additional charges are forthcoming in that county.
