The pursuit began at the intersection of 10th Street and 8th Avenue Southeast in Jamestown, then traveled west to Interstate 94, north on the truck bypass, south on U.S. Highway 52/281 back into Jamestown and then south on Highway 281 to Montpelier.

Deese then reversed course and traveled north on Highway 281 to Jamestown. Officers used spike strips to flatten three tires of the 1996 Honda Accord that Deese was driving. He came to a stop at the intersection of 10th Street and 4th Avenue Southeast in Jamestown and was taken into custody without incident.

The Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the pursuit.

Deese is being held at the Stutsman County Correctional Center on charges of fleeing or attempting to elude, driving under suspension, reckless driving, reckless endangerment, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and three warrants.
