A Grand Rapids teen who pleaded guilty to DWI and fleeing a police officer will not go to jail. Instead, a judge has sentenced him to probation and community service, according to the Itasca County Attorney's Office.

The attorney's office says as part of 18-year-old Grant Gunderson's probation, he will be required to pay a more than $12,000 fine and write apology letters to the victims.

In July of 2013, Gunderson allegedly led authorities on a high-speed chase ending in Grand Rapids. Law enforcement told Eyewitness News he was trying to ram police and other cars off of the road.
