HILLSBORO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Early Sunday morning, 22-year-old Aneesa Villarreal-Brusegaard of Grand Forks is facing charges including for DUI after leading law enforcement on pursuit heading into Hillsboro.

Villarreal-Brusegaard lost control, struck a corner of a house, then a tree, then another tree, and into another home, and then the car caught on fire.
