MASON CITY – According to online court records and the Cerro Gordo County Outstanding Arrest Warrant Report law enforcement is again looking for Jason Glenn Genzler, age 33, of Mason City.

According to court records Assistant Cerro Gordo County District Attorney Steven D. Tynan motioned the court to revoke Genzler’s probation in a domestic abuse case for violating probation. On January 3rd, 2013 magistrate judge Rolf Aronsen issued an arrest warrant and set a probation revocation hearing for February 28th at 8:45 am.

Genzler was last arrested by law enforcement after they found him hiding out at a residence located at 1530 North Madison Avenue. At the time of his last arrest he had been sought by law enforcement for several days after he was charged with one class B felony count of vehicular homicide while operating a motor vehicle intoxicated.

According to Sheriff Kevin Pals, the Iowa State Patrol conducted the accident investigation after a one-vehicle accident that took place on May 12, 2012 at 3:15 AM near 20759 Spruce Avenue.

According to Iowa State Patrol, John Lybarger, age 33, was killed when the 1997 Dodge pickup he was riding in lost control. The Dodge went into the west ditch, rolled and came to rest on its top. Minda Jones, age 32 and Genzler were injured in the accident. Seatbelts were not worn by Lybarger nor Jones.

Genzler is currently out of jail on a $25,000 surety bond posted by 1st Call Bail Bonds on December 13th in the vehicular homicide case. Genzler’s public defender, Letitia Turner, motioned the court for a continuance on Monday, January 7th, in Genzler’s arraignment in the vehicular homicide case. On Tuesday, January 8th, Turner presented a written arraignment and plea of not guilty signed by Genzler. Without him showing up to the court house law enforcement was unable to take him into custody for the probation revocation warrant.

Jason Genzler had shaved his head before his last apprehension by law enforcement on December 10th. He is 6 foot 1 inches tall, 190 pounds with brown eyes with a large tattoo on his left neck. Anybody with information on his current location may provide information to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department at (641) 421-3000.
