Local authorities involved in two high-speed chases over weekend
Jasper County Sheriff’s deputies were engaged in two high-speed chases over the weekend, one involving an intoxicated driver and the other involving a motorcycle.
On Saturday, the sheriff’s office received two reports of an intoxicated driver near the Iowa Speedway. Ten minutes after the reports, a deputy located and stopped Martin D. Shepley of Colfax on Highway F48 for reckless driving on the Skunk River Bridge.
As the deputy was investigating, the vehicle Shepley was driving fled the scene. Two deputies then pursued the vehicle, which headed west toward Colfax. The pursuit reached speeds of 90 mph. The deputies were able to use their vehicle to force Shepley off the road at the intersection of Highway 117 and South 44th Avenue West.
