According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, a Ward County deputy tried to stop Hull, who was observed driving his pickup over the center line on 27th Street SE in Minot at 4:31 a.m. Thursday, but Hull failed to stop. Hull continued south to the intersection of 27th Street NE and Railway Avenue, where he went through the four way stop sign intersection, turning west onto Railway. At this point the Border Patrol had joined the pursuit. The Minot Police Department set up spikes at the intersection of 7th Street NE and Railway Avenue. Hull’s pickup hit the spikes. Hull ran through the stop sign as he turned north onto 3rd Street NE off East Central Avenue. He continued north to the intersection of 3rd Street NE and 6th Avenue NE. He turned west onto 6th Avenue NE and ran through the red light at the intersection of 6th Avenue NE and Broadway without trying to stop or slow down. Hull then continued on 6th Avenue NW, passing another vehicle, and then turned south at the intersection of 6th Avenue NW and 6th Street NW. Hull then went through another red light at the intersection of Western Avenue and 6th Street SW. At this point, Hull’s driver’s side tire was deflated. Hull then traveled south on 6th Street SE and pulled into the Minot Municipal Auditorium parking lot.The vehicle hit a curb and came to a stop. Law enforcement officers ordered Hull out of the vehicle at gunpoint but Hull did not immediately obey, though his passenger did. Hull kept putting the vehicle into forward and reverse, spinning his tires. He got out of the vehicle and began walking away, ignoring commands to stop. One of the officers then deployed his taser, striking Hull’s lower back and behind. Hull dropped to the ground, then rolled over, sat up, and flipped off the officers. He continued to physically resist and tried to pull away as he was handcuffed. Officers then determined Hull had a revoked driver’s license. He was also drunk and had a breath alcohol content of .214.
