Northern Iowa man caught recklessly drunk driving in Worth county, put deputy in danger

WORTH COUNTY – A Worth county deputy was nearly struck by a drunk driver and the culprit was chased down by the fearless law enforcement officer and arrested on several charges, the sheriff’s office says.

On August 23, 2018 at approximately 2:19 AM, a deputy with the Worth County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on a 2004 Chevrolet Venture for nearly striking him while he was conducting another stop and for stopping in the middle of the roadway. Upon further investigation, it was determined that the vehicle was being driven on the rim of the front passenger side tire and the vehicle was likely recently in the ditch as there was grass on and stuck in the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle, Daniel Contreras Garcia of Titonka, Iowa, was placed under arrest for Operating While Intoxicated, Open Container, No Insurance, Reckless Driving, Failure to Yield to Emergency Vehicle, and Unsafe Stopping.

How about you go back to blowing Mike Øbama, loser.

That is an intelligent post Jack.

I just got banned by the MC Globe-Gazelle. I consider it a badge of honor. I guess I wasn’t communist-socialist-Democrat enough for them. Pity when they fire the last of their staff and finally lock the doors for good. Go broke, losers.

Post your comment in the Whiners den you cry baby.

The deputy was chased down and arrested? Why? “A Worth county deputy was nearly struck by a drunk driver and was chased down and arrested on several charges, the sheriff’s office says.”
