POLICE CHASE: Speeding Suspect Charged

Marshalltown Police arrested a suspect who led officers on a chase with speeds topping 100-miles-per-hour.

It all started Friday night when police tried to stop a car on the one-thousand block of East State Street.

The driver wouldn’t pull over and the chase continued outside city limits.

Once the driver hit rural roads, he began driving at speeds between 85 and 100-miles-per-hour.

Police said during the chase, the suspect threw drugs and syringes out of his car window.

The chase came to an end when Marshall County deputies deployed stop sticks near Highway 30.  But before the suspect’s car was disabled, he tried to hit the patrol cars involved.

Police arrested 39-year-old Tyler Shipley of Oskaloosa.

Shipley is charged with an OWI, possession of meth and paraphernalia, eluding and assaulting a police officer along with several other traffic violations.
