Speeding Driver Leads Law Enforcement on 20-mile Pursuit

June 12, 2023

At 1:15PM a Marshall County Deputy was driving westbound on Highway 30 on routine patrol when his patrol vehicle was passed by a westbound car driving 110mph in the 65mph speed zone.  The Deputy activated emergency lights and siren and the vehicle continued several miles before pulling over and stopping momentarily at Jessup Avenue before then crossing both lanes of traffic and turning back into the eastbound lanes of Highway 30 and fleeing.  By this time several units from the Sheriff's Office assisted in the pursuit.  The pursuit went eastbound on Highway 30 at speeds in excess of 100mph.   Tama County Sheriff's Office Deputies were able to deploy stop stick tire deflation devices as the pursuit crossed the Iowa River bridge in Tama County.  The vehicle struck the stop sticks and three tires of the vehicle tires were slowly deflated causing the vehicle to come to a stop near the Meskwaki Travel Plaza and Casino entrance.  The driver was then taken into custody without further incident.  The driver was identified as Keenon Davis, age 28, of Northlake, Illinois.  He was charged with Eluding, Reckless Driving, Excessive Speed, and Fail to Obey Stop Sign.  He is being held in the Marshall County Jail on $2000 bond.  The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be filed.  

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office was assisted in the pursuit by Marshalltown Police Department, Tama County Sheriff's Office, Meskwaki Police Department, and Iowa State Patrol.
