West Fargo man faces felony DUI charges

FARGO – A West Fargo man faces felony charges of driving under the influence here after he was arrested Tuesday.

Brandon Lee Nitschke, 28, will be arraigned today in Cass County District Court on charges of DUI and refusal to submit to a chemical test, both Class C felonies.

In December 2005, a citation for minor in consumption against Nitschke was dismissed, but Nitschke pleaded guilty to a DUI in Grand Forks County.

In June 2011, he pleaded guilty to a Class B misdemeanor of DUI in Fargo Municipal Court.

If convicted of his third DUI, Nitschke faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
