A pursuit Monday evening that started near Terril later ended east of Spencer with the arrest of a man on multiple charges.

The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office says it started a little after 8pm Monday when they received a report of a reckless driver going southbound at a high rate of speed on County Road N-14 north of Terril. A deputy located the suspect vehicle a short time later going westbound in the 2500 block of County Road A-34 going over 100 mph. The deputy attempted to pull it over, but the driver continued at a high rate of speed. A pursuit ensued that went into Clay County. The pursuit ended east of Spencer near the intersection of 230th Avenue and Highway 18. The driver, Ashford Williamson the sixth, was arrested and transported to the Dickinson County jail on charges of eluding, excessive speed, failure to obey a stop sign, and operating without headlights when required.

The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Milford Police Department, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Spencer Police Department, Iowa State Patrol, and a towing service.
