Man Arrested After Car and Foot Chase in Moorhead

Posted: Updated:
A man is in jail after leading Clay County Deputies on a car and foot chase Friday morning.

Officials say a deputy pulled over Ransi Thomas about 1:00 a.m. near Highway 52 and 40th Avenue South in Moorhead.  Thomas ended up driving off as the deputy tried to arrest him for a warrant. 

The deputy chased Thomas for about a half a mile but stopped after he got on I-94 going the wrong way.  Officials say the deputy did follow from a distance with his lights on to try and warn people about the car coming at them.

Thomas ended up crashing in a ditch near Rasmussen College in Moorhead.

He got out and ran to 30th Avenue South before officers caught up with him.

Thomas is facing several charges including running from police and possession of a firearm.
