MASON CITY, Iowa – A man accused of his second 100 mile per hour chase with authorities is pleading not guilty.
Eric Jensen, 37 of Osage, is charged with possession of methamphetamine-3rd or subsequent offense, eluding, and driving while barred.
The Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office says Jensen sped away from a traffic stop just after midnight on September 19 and started a high-speed pursuit that lasted several minutes and entered southern Worth County. Law enforcement says Jensen was caught after he went off the road near Hanlontown and tried to run away. Two sheriff’s vehicles were damaged in the chase.
Jensen’s trial is set to begin on December 4. He was sentenced to a 100 day jail sentence in June after pleading guilty to crashing his car into a power pole after another chase that reached over 100 miles per hour.
