CHARLES CITY – A newly-convicted drug dealer who sped out of Charles City on his motorcycle with law enforcement on his tail this summer is set for a plea deal.
Charles City police thanked the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, Iowa State Patrol, Chickasaw County Deputies, and the Nashua Police Department for helping them corral 26-year-old Kyle Fitzpatrick Thursday night, August 25, 2016. Police say that Fitzpatrick, at about 8:30 PM, was spotted by an officer in Charles City who attempted to his motorcycle on South Main Street and 5th Street. Fitzpatrick did not stop and instead went out onto Highway 14 and south on Highway 218 to Nashua at a high rate of speed.
Finally, the cycle was stopped by a Floyd County Deputy on B60 east of Nashua. Fitzpatrick, of Mason City, was arrested and faces charges of eluding law enforcement, driving while suspended, speeding, two registration violations and had an outstanding Cerro Gordo County warrant.
In June, Kyle Fitzpatrick pleaded guilty to felony charge of attempting to deliver marijuana after he was charged by Clear Lake police. He was given 3 years of probation, along with a suspended 5-year prison sentence and a suspended fine. He was later accused of violating that probation, leading to a warrant for his arrest.
Fitzpatrick is now being held in the Cerro Gordo county jail on a probation violation connected to this drug dealing conviction. He is set for a plea hearing on November 22 in connection to the chase out of Charles City.
