NASHUA, Iowa (AP) — Police arrested a Miami man in northeast Iowa after a high-speed chase and then learned he faces a murder charge in Florida.
The Iowa State Patrol says a trooper tried to stop a speeding vehicle Thursday morning near Nashua. The vehicle fled at speeds up to 100 mph and headed toward oncoming traffic.
The state patrol says officers stopped the vehicle after stretching a barrier across the road to deflate the tires.
Police arrested the driver, 21-year-old Devon Cooke, on charges including drunken driving, eluding police and assault on a police officer. Authorities also determined he was wanted on a 2nd degree murder charge in Dade County, Florida.
