HARLAN, Iowa — A man has been accused of leading police on a high-speed chase in western Iowa.

Harlan police say 43-year-old Kenneth D. Kokemiller, of Perry, was traveling 51 mph in a 25 mph zone Monday night when authorities attempted to stop him. Police say he instead continued driving, traveling through open lots, fields and ditches.

Kokemiller is accused of traveling up to 110 mph. His vehicle later turned off the road to cut across a cornfield, which caused the car to roll several times. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The Daily Nonpareil ( ) reports Kokemiller was eventually released and taken to the Shelby County Jail. He faces multiple charges, including possession of stolen property, reckless driving and speeding. Court records do not list an attorney.
