Police chase reaches 100 mph, suspect arrested

An attempted traffic violation stop resulted in a chase where Marshall County Sheriff’s officers used stop sticks to deflate the tires of the suspect’s vehicle for an arrest Friday afternoon.

Tyler Shipley, 39, of Oskaloosa, was charged with operating while intoxicated (third offense), possession of meth, eluding, driving while barred, possession of drug paraphernalia, littering, three counts of assault on a peace officer and several traffic violations.

The chase started after a traffic stop in the 1000 block of East State Street by Marshalltown Police. It moved to East Main Street out of Marshalltown. It eventually led to Zeller Avenue where speeds reached 100 miles an hour. The stop sticks ended the chase near Highway 30 but not before Shipley allegedly tried to strike law enforcement vehicles with his vehicle and was also spotted throwing drugs and syringes onto the road out of the window while driving.

Marshalltown Police made the arrest and Shipley is charged with four Class D felonies, one aggravated misdemeanor, one serious misdemeanor and two simple misdemeanors.

He was transported to the Marshall County Jail.
