OSAGE – A Nora Springs man has had a rough month, after a guilty plea to drug possession and then an arrest this weekend after he ran from Osage police during a traffic stop.
The Osage Iowa Police Department reported today that on November 23 at approximately 2:00 PM, an officer stopped a vehicle for a seat belt violation. The driver, 20-year-old Michael Dalluge of Nora Springs, had a suspended license in Iowa.
When the officer attempted to place Dalluge under arrest, he took off in his vehicle leading officers on a chase for a few blocks where he then exited and ran on foot and attempted to hide from officers.
Dalluge was found and arrested a short time later. He has been charged with multiple traffic violations, Failure to Wear a Seat Belt, Failure to have Insurance, Failure to File SR-22 Insurance, Driving under Suspension and Eluding. He was also charged with Interference with Official Acts and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Additional charges are pending.

On November 16, Dalluge pled guilty to possession of Marijuana, stemming from a traffic stop early in the morning of July 7 at Dogwood Avenue and 310th Street, north of Clear Lake. He was sentenced to 2 days in jail and ordered to pay $756.25 in fines and court fees. Charges of interference with official acts and possession of drug paraphernalia will be handled in a February 2016 trial.
