RURAL CERRO GORDO COUNTY – Shortly after 11:30 Friday night, January 27, 2012, a member of the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department attempted to make a traffic contact north of Rock Falls at the intersection of Vine and 310th Street with a red 1996 Saturn driven by 21-year-old Joshua Allen Skuster.

Instead of pulling over Skuster allegedly attempted to elude law enforcement on gravel roads at speeds in access of 100 miles per hour at times.

The chase lasted twenty miles across two counties as members of the Iowa State Patrol, Mitchell County Sheriff’s Department, and Osage Police joined the pursuit before it was ending near the Fox River Mills plant in Osage.

Skuster was arrested and transported from the scene to the Cerro Gordo County Jail. Law enforcement has charged him with an aggravated misdemeanor count of eluding a law enforcement vehicle, an aggravated misdemeanor count of driving while barred, and four simple misdemeanor counts of driving while suspended, no proof of insurance, failure to obey stop or yield signs, and load unauthorized muffler.

Skuster is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $4,000 cash or surety bond pending further court proceedings on February 3rd at 8:30am.

According to online records this is Skuster’s third arrest since Christmas Eve. He is currently awaiting court proceedings in Mitchell County following an alleged domestic abuse assault incident on Christmas Eve. Skuster was then arrested again in Cerro Gordo County for another alleged domestic abuse assault incident on December 30th.

      while he was doing those classes he was then going to other chicks houses to try to get laid at night talking about how he wished she would just get out of his life and how he wished she would lose the baby. her and that kid deserve better. maybe the jail time will give her a chance to realize that.

    Hey Harry Potter, what were you thinking driving around with that “load” unauthorized muffler? That takes some kind of bad ass to even consider doing something like that.

    For the longest time he drove a lawn mower around Mason City. The guy is a scrawny punk. I’ve seen his girlfriend and I know she could kick his ass. Very sad.
