West Des Moines Man Arrested After High-Speed Pursuit

April 25, 2022 at 1:05 pm

At 2:39AM on Saturday, April 23 a Marshall County Sheriff's Deputy checked on an occupied vehicle that was parked at a gas station that was closed near Melbourne.  The driver of the vehicle provided a false name and information to the Deputy.  A check of the vehicle registration revealed that the owner of the vehicle had outstanding warrants out of five different Iowa counties, with two of the counties holding felony warrants, and his drivers license had a status of "Barred" and "Revoked" in Iowa.  It was determined that the driver was the owner of the vehicle.  The driver of the vehicle drove away from the Deputy and Officer at the scene and a pursuit ensued.  The pursuit reached speeds over 100mph and continued southbound on Highway 330 and then Highway 65 into Jasper and Polk County.  The vehicle then turned back northbound and drove off Highway F-17 in Jasper County into a farm field where he fled a short distance on foot from the vehicle before climbing a tree.  The driver was taken into custody without incident with assistance from Marshalltown Police Department K9, Iowa State Patrol, Jasper County Sheriff's Office, and Des Moines Police Department.  

The driver was identified as Austin James Hill, age 34, of West Des Moines.  He was arrested and taken to the Marshall County Jail.  He was charged with Eluding, Reckless Driving, Speed 100/65, Driving While Barred, Driving While Revoked, Driving Under Suspension, No Valid Drivers License, Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Ignition Interlock Device, and Providing False Information.  He is being held on $5000 bond for Marshall County charges and warrants out of Adams, Polk, and Tama Counties.
