DES MOINES, Iowa — A West Des Moines man is in the Polk County Jail following a motorcycle chase in Des Moines early Wednesday morning.
Des Moines police say 29-year-old Jordan Young was riding a stolen motorcycle when he led officers on a high-speed chase. It ended around 2:00 a.m. at Northeast 51st and Hull. Young tried to take the bike off-road near a wooded area but that’s when officers say the motorcycle stalled.
Young wasn’t injured in the chase but two officers suffered minor injuries when their squad car went into a ditch.
Young faces charges including 2nd degree theft, eluding, and OWI.
