A Mayville, N.D., man who led UND and Grand Forks police on a high-speed chase reaching speeds near 80 mph on March 5 changed his plea Thursday and was sentenced.

Eric Shawn Grant, 38, pleaded guilty in Grand Forks District Court to felonies for possession of a controlled substance and reckless endangerment. He also pleaded guilty to fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while his license privilege is suspended, all misdemeanors.

His sentences for each charge will be served at the same time, and he will ultimately serve less than six months in prison and 18 months of supervised probation.

Two charges, refusing to halt and possession of marijuana, were dismissed.

He was originally charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, a Class A felony, but that was amended to a Class C felony at his sentencing Thursday.
