MASON CITY, Iowa – A trial date is set for a man accused of deliberately crashing into a law enforcement vehicle.

Jacob Monroe Cullum, 37 of Mason City, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree criminal mischief, driving while barred, and eluding.

Law enforcement says a fully marked patrol vehicle encountered Cullum around 2:46 am on December 29, 2022, on 5th Street SE in Mason City.  Court documents state Cullum led the patrol vehicle on a chase that exceeded 25 miles per hour over the speed limit and he deliberately backed into the patrol vehicle to try and disable it.

Prosecutors say the collision caused over $1,500 damage to the front end of the patrol vehicle.

Cullum is scheduled to stand trial starting March 14.
