GRAND FORKS, ND (trfnews.i234.me) – In the early hours of Wednesday, a dramatic pursuit unfolded in Grand Forks as law enforcement attempted to apprehend a hallucinating driver from Fargo. According to the criminal complaint, the incident began when a deputy attempted to pull over Matthew Eagleman on South Washington for speeding and driving without lights.

Eagleman, exhibiting erratic behavior, fled southward, narrowly avoiding a collision with a semi-truck as he sped through the intersection at 32nd Avenue, reaching speeds between 60 to 80 mph. Despite the dangerous chase, law enforcement managed to halt Eagleman’s reckless journey shortly afterward.

Upon inspection, deputies discovered a glass pipe with meth residue in Eagleman’s possession. When questioned, Eagleman confessed to not having slept in seven days and admitted to smoking meth. He claimed that two black trucks had been pursuing him since Fargo.

During the arrest, Eagleman’s hallucinatory state became evident as he pointed at a squad car in the field, insisting it was one of the black trucks chasing him.

Matthew Eagleman faces a slew of charges, including felony fleeing, reckless endangerment, possession of drug paraphernalia, and misdemeanor driving under suspension.
