A Grundy Center man was arrested in Marshall County after leading law enforcement on a high speed chase that stretched over three counties and resulted in damage to a Tama County deputy’s vehicle on Monday morning.

According to a press release from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, a state trooper attempted to stop a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Trae Louis Redix in Grundy County. He refused to stop, leading authorities on a high-speed pursuit that went into Tama County and then eventually into Marshall County on Highway 96, where deputies successfully deployed Stop Stick tire deflation devices.

The driver lost control and entered the ditch striking a sign and coming to a stop after the pursuit had reached speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour.

Earlier in the pursuit, the driver struck a Tama County deputy’s patrol car, causing damage, and he was driving into oncoming traffic before the pursuit safely ended. Redix was taken into custody and is facing multiple charges in Grundy and Tama Counties.
