Intoxicated driver arrested after leading West Fargo police on high-speed chase

West Fargo, North Dakota – A West Fargo man found himself in deep trouble with the law after engaging in a dangerous high-speed chase on February 18. Treyden Ziegler, the man at the center of this event, is now facing serious charges, highlighting the perilous nature of his actions while under the influence.

The chase began when a vigilant officer on patrol noticed Ziegler speeding through the 700 block of 40th Avenue East. Ziegler was clocked traveling at an alarming speed of 74 miles per hour, far exceeding the legal limit for the area. This reckless behavior prompted the officer to initiate a chase in an attempt to bring Ziegler to a stop.

As the pursuit unfolded, the situation escalated dramatically. Ziegler pushed his vehicle to astonishing speeds, at times reaching up to 120 miles per hour. This not only endangered his own life but also posed a significant risk to other road users and the pursuing officers. The chase eventually came to a dramatic conclusion on 15th Street West, where officers strategically deployed spike strips to halt Ziegler’s vehicle.

Following the cessation of the chase, Ziegler was arrested and faced charges of reckless endangerment. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the dangers associated with driving under the influence and the severe consequences that can follow such irresponsible actions. The swift response by the police in handling this high-speed chase ensured the safety of the community, preventing what could have been a tragic outcome.
