Authorities say Sanchez and his two female passengers got out and ran.

 

"The initial charges that were presented to the states attorney are for fleeing for the driver in the motor vehicle. And for refusing to halt for the passengers once they fled on foot,” said Sgt. Andy Schneider, with the Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department.

 

Deputies tell WDAY News the driver had a warrant out for his arrest and they allegedly found marijuana in the car.
