Two charged after 140-mph chase that ended in Dallas County, Iowa

DALLAS COUNTY, Iowa- Two out-of-state men are facing charges after leading Iowa State Troopers and deputies on a chase Tuesday afternoon that exceeded 140-miles per hour, on I-80.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office says 20-year old Anthony Jones from Georgia, and 20-year-old Frederick Gordon (pictured) from Florida are in custody.

The Iowa State Patrol tried to pull over their car for speeding on Highway 71 near Atlantic, but the car took off onto eastbound I-80.

Van Meter Police used stop sticks to puncture the car's tires, and the vehicle ended up in the median briefly. One Dallas County Deputy used a "pit" maneuver, a second Deputy struck and pinned the vehicle against a cable barrier.

Both the driver and passenger were then taken into custody, and transported to a local hospital because they said they had ingested narcotics.

Jones faces a long list of charges including, eluding, reckless driving, possession of narcotics, speed, and tinted windows.

Gordon is wanted out of Kentucky, on seven arrest warrants for fraud, illegal use of credit cards, and theft. Gordon will be extradited back to Kentucky to face the charges.

The two face additional charges from the Iowa State Patrol.
