MASON CITY, Iowa – A Minnesota man is sentenced to jail for a 100 mile per hour chase which began in Albert Lea and violently concluded in Clear Lake.

Jacob Aaron Eberly, 32 of Brainerd, MN, was arrested on June 22 after the pursuit ended with his vehicle being rammed by law enforcement on Interstate 35 and rolling. He eventually pleaded guilty to eluding and leaving the scene of an accident in Cerro Gordo County District Court and was sentenced Wednesday to three years of probation on the eluding charge and 52 days in jail and a $315 fine for leaving the scene.

Charges are still pending against Eberly in Freeborn County for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property. He’s also accused of terroristic threats in Hennepin County in connection to a bomb threat at the Mall of America.
