ESTHERVILLE, IOWA – Law enforcement was able to stop and subdue a man who wouldn’t quit during a long, wild chase through Emmet county.

The Emmet County Sheriffs Office reports that a Sibley, Iowa man is in custody as the result of a traffic stop in Emmet County. According to Emmet County Sheriff Mike Martens, a sheriff’s deputy who was at the intersection of 490th Avenue and Highway 9 at 3:45 AM last Thursday morning observed a westbound vehicle with a radar indicated speed of 89 mph. The deputy sheriff attempted to initiate a traffic stop of the vehicle. Upon trying to stop this vehicle, the vehicle then attempted to flee from the deputy sheriff and accelerated to speeds in excess of 120 mph still continuing westbound on Highway 9.

The vehicle entered Estherville on Highway 9 where the Estherville Police Department joined in the effort to stop the vehicle. After a brief chase through some city side streets the chase left the city limits of Estherville on 5th Avenue North traveling back Eastbound into the country. Then as the vehicle approached 410th Avenue, it failed to turn onto 410th Avenue and entered a cornfield. The vehicle still attempting to flee traveled for approximately one mile through the field before trying to exit the field becoming stuck in a road ditch near the intersection of 420th Avenue and 160th Street.

The driver abandoned the 2007 Ford Sedan registered to Paul Erickson of Armstrong, Iowa and fled North on foot through a farm field before being taken into custody by officers from the Estherville Police Department.

The driver, identified as 27-year-old Casey Gene Schneidermann of Sibley, Iowa was booked into the Emmet County Jail and charged with Eluding a Law Enforcement Vehicle, (a class(D) Felony), Carrying Weapons, (a serious misdemeanor), Interference with Official Acts, (a serious misdemeanor), Speeding, 120mph in a 55mph zone, (a simple misdemeanor) Speeding, 108 in a 45 mph zone, (a simple misdemeanor), Driving with a suspended license, (a simple misdemeanor), and two counts of failure to obey a traffic control device, (both simple misdemeanors).
