Trussville man leads Iowa police on dangerous chase
A Trussville man was arrested in Fort Dodge, Iowa after a high-speed chase over the weekend.
The dangerous chase occurred just before 2 a.m. Sunday. August 5th, when a patrol officer observed a black Ford F250 ram a Chevy Caprice at an intersection. The force of the crash pushed the Caprice into the intersection and over a center island. The passenger sitting in the front seat was ejected.
The officer who witnessed the wreck attempted to stop the F250, but the driver fled the scene. A pursuit ensued for seventeen minutes, through downtown and residential neighborhoods. Fifteen minutes into the chase, the suspect left the road and drove into fully developed corn fields. Police say the suspect reached speeds in excess of 100 MPH.
Officers set a perimeter and a Webster County Deputy and his K9 partner and officer located the suspect hiding not too far from his truck.
The suspect was identified as 24-year-old Camden Wayne Cease of Trussville. He has been charged with Eluding, Second Degree Criminal Mischief, four counts of Assault Using a Dangerous Weapon, Operating While Intoxicated, and "various traffic offenses."
The four adults in the Chevy Caprice all refused medical attention at the scene.
