June 26th, 2011 by Ric Hanson

A Bedford man was arrested Saturday evening after a brief chase that resulted from an attempted traffic stop. The Adams County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy attempted to pull 22-year old Wilbur Pace over for speeding on Highway 34 at around 6:20-p.m., when Pace sped-up.

Pace was finally stopped and placed under arrest on charges of eluding, speeding, and for allegedly having an open container in his vehicle.

And, a central Iowa man was arrested Saturday on two charges, after he failed to stop for a stop sign. Officials say 50-year old Jesse Alexander, of Urbandale, was charged with OWI and Failure to Stop, following the incident which occurred at around 12:10-a.m., Saturday.

Pace and Alexander were being held in the Adams County Jail pending an appearance before the magistrate.
