High Speed Chase Arrest

A Wellman man has been arrested for leading police on a high speed chase through Evansdale and Waterloo on Wednesday night, according to the Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier. Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Deputies attempted to pull over a Nissan Altima for a bad brake light around 7:35pm Wednesday. The Altima sped off, however, hitting curbs and running stop signs before hitting 100 mph in a 55 mph zone. After the driver, later identified as 55 year old Nick Temple, hit stop stick, he continued driving for a time on the rims. Eventually the vehicle came to a stop and Temple tried to run but was taken into custody in the backyard of a home. A search of his car turned up six glass tubes with methamphetamine residue. Temple was charged with Eluding, Interference, and Possession of Meth.
