MASON CITY, Iowa – A man arrested after a 100 mile per hour chase is trying to prove he can be both guilty and not guilty at the same time.

Jacob Aaron Eberly, 32 of Lake Stevens, Washington, and formerly of Brainerd, MN, has entered a not guilty plea to unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and receiving stolen property in Freeborn County District Court. Both charges are felonies.

Authorities say Eberly stole a car in Albert Lea on June 22 and was chased into Iowa before he was rammed by law enforcement on Interstate 35 and crashed just outside Clear Lake. Eberly pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and eluding in Cerro Gordo County District Court and received 52 days in jail and three years of probation.

A trial date has not been set for him in Freeborn County. Eberly is also facing a charge of terroristic threats in Hennepin County for an alleged bomb threat at the Mall of America on June 14.
