Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a man with several warrants, including vehicular homicide and first-degree burglary.

Alex M. Spangenburg, 24, was arrested on Friday for public intoxication and taken to the Jasper County Jail where he was later released after posting bond on Saturday.

Jasper County Sheriff John Halferty said the bond has since been revoked by a judge and Spangenburg is now wanted on a no-bond warrant until he goes before the judge again.

Spangenburg, formerly of Newton, is the same man who most recently was arrested on July 27 in Monroe after he allegedly followed a vehicle and punched the driver twice in the face in an attempt to force his way in. Previously, Spangenburg was charged with vehicular homicide for the October 2016 death of Bret Rice.

Spangenburg was the driver of a motorcycle which crashed at West Fourth Street South and South 15th Avenue West near Maytag Park killing his passenger, Rice. Newton police said Spangenburg’s BAC was more than .163 at the time of the crash. An Oct. 25 jury trial is currently set for those charges.

Contact the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office at 641-792-5912 with any information about Spangenburg or his whereabouts.
