Cass County Sheriff vehicle sideswiped during chase, suspect still at large

A Cass County Sheriff’s Vehicle was sideswiped during a chase, and law enforcement is still looking for the runaway driver.

Tuesday around 7:15 PM, the Cass County Sheriff’s Office assisted the West Fargo Police Department in a vehicle pursuit that started in West Fargo and ultimately ended in Cass County near Buffalo.

During the incident, a Cass County deputy had attempted to deploy stop sticks at an intersection on County Road 11 about 7 miles north of Mapleton.
