GRAFTON, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota man is accused of forcing his girlfriend and her daughter to stand along a North Dakota highway in extreme cold.
Scott Boothman, 44, of Warroad, Minn., faces three felonies including terrorizing and two misdemeanors including drunken driving. Court documents don't list an attorney for him.
The Walsh County Sheriff's Department tells the Grand Forks Herald Boothman was driving with his girlfriend and her daughter from Warroad to Grand Forks Sunday when he allegedly forced them to stand outside at an Interstate 29 exit near Grafton. The wind chill was as cold as 30 degrees below zero. Sheriff Lauren Wild says the woman and girl were not injured by the cold.
Boothman was arrested shortly after following a chase that authorities say reached speeds of 100 mph.
