MARION COUNTY, Iowa — A man sought by Knoxville police following a high-speed chase last week has been arrested.

Police say 22-year-old Travis Sickler took a car without the owner’s consent last Friday. He led police on a chase reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour. Officers called off the chase and Sickler got away.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says Sickler was taken into custody Thursday in the Harvey area. He faces several charges related to the chase and was also wanted on warrants for domestic violence and parole violations.

Sickler has not yet made his initial appearance before a judge.
