On 12/12/2019 at 2359 hours a Worth County Deputy attempted to stop a Maroon 2002 Ford Taurus with expired registration. The incident turned into a brief high speed pursuit heading west on 410th Street from Joice Iowa. The vehicle attempted to elude law enforcement by increasing to speeds of at-least 85MPH in the 55MPH zone. The driver identified as Jason Charles Jensen of Lake Mills yielded to the Deputy’s lights and sirens by pulling over on the 100 Block of 410th Street but remained uncompliant. Jensen refused to exit the vehicle. He had to be forcibly removed from the vehicle after refusing to comply with Deputies. He was arrested and charged with Eluding-speed over 25 over limit (aggravated misdemeanor), Driving While Barred (aggravated misdemeanor), Interference with Official Acts (simple misdemeanor), and Registration Violation (simple misdemeanor). All individuals are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
