How the Police Chase Started

Police gather that Cramer was driven by his mother, Kris, to a hospital over concerns about his mental health.

When Kris got out of the SUV, Ian took the wheel and drove through a door to get out of the enclosed ambulance bay at the hospital’s emergency department.

Over an hour later, a deputy in neighboring Mercer County spotted Cramer and the Chevrolet Tahoe in Hazen, a community about 70 miles northwest of Bismarck. 

Then a chase began and the SUV crashed into a Mercer County sheriff’s vehicle that was parked along a state highway, per the North Dakota Highway Patrol in a news release.

A deputy, later identified as Officer Paul Martin, was standing behind the parked vehicle and preparing to deploy a tire deflation device to end the chase. 

The impact of the crash pushed the parked vehicle into the 53-year-old deputy, resulting in his death. 

The accused was evaluated at a hospital and then jailed. He had initially been charged with manslaughter but it was later upgraded to the homicide count.

The first-term Republican senator wrote at the time that his son ‘suffers from serious mental disorders which manifest in severe paranoia and hallucinations.’
